19 February 2019 - Updated Pricelist

Hortus Technical Services are pleased to announce a change to our pricelist. Our new format is easier to read and understand what is included in each of our testing packages. Please note changes to our Soil packages and the introduction of new Irrigation Water packages. This revision has occurred due to a review of all costs associated with testing and our new packages reflect a more streamlined approach. There has been no increase in costs, however, our new packages are completed at lower costs, and these savings have been passed onto you.

The new pricelist is officially coming into effect on 1 March 2019, however, the office are happy to receive samples using these new codes from today.

The Hortus Team.
