First plants in ground at Thanet Earth

The tomatoes and peppers were planted in just four days in December

The ground-breaking UK greenhouse complex, Thanet Earth, has had its very low carbon status confirmed just weeks after half a million tomato and pepper plants settled in its greenhouses.

The independent assessment, carried out by consultants Bidwells Agribusiness, reports that the site near Birchington, East Kent qualified for the very low carbon status as set out by the British Standards Institute and the Carbon Trust in 2008.
