Sipcam launches new products for 2021 under the pioneering ecofective range

The pioneering ecofective® range of garden care and plant protection products is to have a fresh new look for 2021 – with supplier Sipcam Home & Garden unveiling a raft of innovative developments that set a new benchmark for sustainable retail. 


New ecofective® Slug Defence RTU will lead the way in helping retailers to plug gaps left on pest control shelves as a result of the withdrawal of metaldehyde last summer. It features a unique calcium-based formula that, when applied to foliage and stems, creates a ‘plant-medicated’ effect that discourages slugs so they disperse and feed elsewhere. Not only do leaves absorb the formula for a longer-lasting slug-deterring effect, but it also strengthens and stimulates plant growth, ramping-up the product’s appeal to both existing gardeners and novices. 


Sipcam Home & Garden is also introducing new ecofective® Plant Disease Defence, a tried and tested product in commercial agriculture that has now been adapted for launch to consumers via retail channels. It works by tricking plants into an immune response by stimulating a disease attack – building up the plants’ immunity to common garden diseases such as powdery mildew, blackspot and rust. Supplied in the most sustainable packaging used to date, both ecofective® Slug Defence RTU and Plant Disease Defence come in bottles that are made from recycled materials and are also recyclable. 


In July, Sipcam Home and Garden, signed a deal with Blumen International Ltd that secured its appointment as the exclusive distributor of Blumen’s portfolio – which includes the award winning Fito range and extremely popular GET OFF® series. The Fito range of Drip Feeders covers the 7 most popular houseplants in the UK. Slow release, the feeds are simply snipped at the tip and turned upside down for up to 15 days of feeding. The series also includes a range of Natural Drip Feeders that are perfect for GYO.
