Sustainable and proven

Besgrow specialises in the production of high quality growing substrates from sustainable, renewable resources. It is important to us to provide you with products that will allow you to grow high quality plants with less effort. Our sustainable process is managed from the raw resource through to our processing facilities to create high quality solutions to satisfy growers.

Our three core products are Orchiata (orchid bark), Spagmoss (NZ sphagnum moss), and coconut Coir. Our products have been backed up by research, rigorous processes and testing to give you a proven result. At the root of everything we do is the goal to helping our customers grow healthy plants.


Orchiata is produced from Pinus Radiata Bark which is a by-product from the sustainable forestry industry within New Zealand. We process the bark in a unique and natural way that produces a Premium stable Growing Substrate.


Spagmoss is produced from our West Coast wetlands in a sustainable and renewable way. New Zealand Sphagnum Moss is the finest moss available in the world and is used extensively growing orchids and other moisture loving plants.
