REMIN TESTIMONIAL – Beat This !!       Download as PDF

On this “Discovering the Secrets of REMIN” journey, every so often amazing stories turn up – and this one competes for top position!   Keith Woodhead, a “hobby gardener from West Yorkshire” has 4 allotment plots with 2 greenhouses where he grows 90% of his produce and the other 10% is grown in the small garden around his house.   It turns out Keith is also a Chef trained in Indian cooking.

Keith has been growing on this same ground for 15 years and 5 years ago he started using REMIN.   The improvement was so significant he had the confidence to purchase a 1 tonne pallet at the start of 2018.   The above photos show some of what Keith grew in 2018, these being selected from over 200 that he WhatsApp-ed over.    Whilst the photographs tell the story here are Keith’s main points:

  1. RIGHT NOW (autumn, winter and early spring) is the best time to apply REMIN. Photo 1 shows me adding REMIN this month (November) to my HONEYBERRIES – and photo of crop this produced already this year, with REMIN added this time last year.
  2. REMIN brings significant benefit to everything I grow
  3. Growing my crops with REMIN has taken the flavour of my dishes to another level!
  4. I specialise in breeding my own hybrid trees that take several years to grow to the stage where they are fruiting. HONEYMOON (Photo 5) is a trademarked APRICOT / PEACH hybrid.  Its flavour is amazing, and I am convinced that REMIN plays a big part in this.
  5. My STONE FRUITS, especially the NECTARINES are a grenade of flavour, far better than anything you can buy in the shops.
  6. Whilst the PEPPERS flavour was amazing, everyone who tasted my CUCUMBER said their sweetness and overall taste was exceptional.
  7. I practise COMPANION PLANTING eg TOMATOES with BORAGE and PARSELY- the PARSLEY grew in excess of 7 foot!



  1. GREENHOUSE BORDERS: 10kg REMIN to every 1 cubic metre soil and compost
  2. FRUIT TREES WHEN PLANTING: 3 handfuls of REMIN mixed through in-fill soil in the planting hole of approx. 1m across then 2 handfuls scattered as a top dressing.
  3. FRUIT TREES ALREADY GROWING:  1 handful / square metre under over hanging branches
  4. FOR OPEN GROUND FOR SEEDS: I tend to wait till seeds have germinated and are strong enough to take a light top dressing of REMIN.
  5. FOR TRANSPLANTING PLUG PLANTS: I tend to apply a scattering of REMIN to the plug roots before putting them in the ground.    I always try to avoid applying to top of soil between the rows so that I can avoid encouraging WEEDS.
  6. MY LAWN: During this hot summer everyone grass in my neighbourhood when completely brown – whilst mine continued green and lush.  I wish I had taken comparative photos.

GENERAL COMMENT:  I am convinced there is no upper limit to amount of REMIN to apply to soil or compost – apart from financial of course!   The good old SWEDE for example does not tend to show any ill effects after a good dose of REMIN and yet it is notorious for splitting when overfed, and yes, it will still split if over-watered.   From my experience a good dose of REMIN noticeably enhances the size and flavour of the SWEDE.
