Gegu Agriculture: Beautiful and easy to use is the first choice for home gardening enthusiasts

In the post-pandemic era, the home gardening market is on the rise. According to the Balcony Vegetable Planting Report 2022, the sales of various seeds on Taobao and Tmall platforms have increased rapidly year-on-year, and the number of buyers has increased by more than 100% for three consecutive years, of which "post-95s" accounted for 60% of the total number of buyers. Meanwhile, sales of ancillary facilities such as flower pots, nutrient soil, fertilizers, and gardening tools are also on the rise.

"Since entering the Chinese market in 2012, we have insisted on covering the two major markets of home gardening and large-scale planting. It can be seen that these two major markets in China have developed rapidly in recent years. We have also seen that as more and more substrate suppliers join, the market competition is intensifying, and high, medium, and low-end products can be found on the market," said Mr. Zhang Yang, general manager of Shanghai Gegu Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd. "Gegu is a professional coconut peat supplier with deep experience in the industry. In addition to supplying coconut peat blocks, coconut peat cultivation bags, and mixed substrates to large-scale agricultural planting companies, we also focus on the home gardening market. In terms of retail, we have two major brands, Galuku and CoirPlus. We have nearly 20 retail products, covering the whole country through more than 40 online and offline distributors."

"As far as household consumption is concerned, more and more people choose to use the limited space at home, such as balconies, to grow plants, including flowers, vegetables, potted fruits, etc. Balcony planting has become one of the ways for urban people to relieve stress and pursue a better life. This group of people has higher requirements for the appearance of products, such as beautiful flowerpots, neat substrates, and clean environments. The sense of joy that people pursue in the process of planting and harvesting is far greater than the edible value of the plants. "

"Secondly, the product should be easy to use. Compared with traditional soil planting, professional soilless cultivation substrates such as coconut peat have their own uniqueness. Their advantages are cleanness, no pests and diseases, and natural and organic. The disadvantage is that it does not contain fertilizers and needs to be used together with nutrient solutions. In this way, there is a certain technical threshold, which makes it difficult for home growers who are just getting started, especially the skills of fertilizing and watering are not easy to master."

For the past ten years, Gegu has been making home gardening easier. It provides products from the initial and most basic coconut peat bricks and coconut peat blocks to the matching AB nutrient solution, as well as the Coconut Peat Beauty Planting Bag that can be used as a flowerpot, and the Coconut Peat Nutrient Soil that contains the nutrients needed by plants. Added natural nutrients such as full-nutrient fertilizers, minerals, probiotics, and humic acid on the basis of coconut peat, the nutrient soil allows growers to grow good crops without using nutrient solutions, further simplifying the planting process.

In 2022, Gegu officially launched AutoGarden, an intelligent planting device that can automatically water plants. The automatic vegetable garden is as big as a desk and can grow 16 pots of plants, such as green leafy vegetables, herbs, strawberries, etc., through regular and quantitative scientific irrigation so that the plants grow faster and better. Zhang Yang introduced, "The biggest advantage of an automatic vegetable garden is peace of mind. It allows people to enjoy the fun of planting and harvesting without spending too much effort."
