Founded by brothers Dominic and Kieron Tompkin, LAVA-LITE was born when the founders realised their gardens needed a boost after the harsh winter months. Having surrounded their beds with decorative stones to brighten up the garden, the brothers soon realised that these stones were also working wonders on their plants, even during one of the hottest, driest summer’s on record. LAVA-LITE is the product of this discovery, and is designed to keep plants at their healthiest, with minimal watering or effort required. Now, LAVA-LITE offers a range of carefully formulated, specialised mixes for every gardener’s need.
