SIDEAU® - the 100% natural floral foam alternative.

Agra Wool International Group from The Netherlands, is known worldwide for their substrates and water absorbing natural rock wool products for growers. After extensive testing with the product’s density, in 2018 Agra Wool developed a product that has the same characteristics as floral foam in termsof use; SIDEAU®. In contrast to floral foam, that is made from oil derivatives and phenol resin - which is plastic - SIDEAU® is fully natural made. Therefore SIDEAU® is perfectly suited for florists and flower arrangers who want to use a fully environmentally friendly base for their creations.

  • Sideau® is completely natural (made of basalt and an organic binder of Sucrose). No petrochemicals or microplastics are used in the production process.
  • Sideau® absorbs water incredibly fast (a few seconds) without the formation of air bubbles in the product.
  • Sideau® is usable for all kinds of flower arrangements, dried flowers, silk flowers and fresh flowers. One product for all your flower arrangements.
  • Sideau® is reusable because of its spongy structure. It can be used for a second time by, for instance, wrapping chicken wire around it.
  • Sideau® continues to absorb water time after time. This allows you to add water if the flower arrangement threatens to dry out.
  • With Sideau® you no longer have any product waste. If you have pieces left over after cutting the Sideau® blocks into shapes, you can easily tear these pieces into smaller parts and keep them. Put them in a pot, vase or wooden crate and use Sideau® as a substitute for potting soil. Anything with a root will grow on it.
  • Sideau® has a neutral Ph-value of Ph 7.3 and a small nutrient supply of Ec 0.8.
  • Sideau® is easy to cut with for example a bread knife, without crumbling.
  • Sideau® can be disposed of in small pieces in the green container (according to the legislation of your country). You can also deposit it on your compost heap.
  • What remains when degraded, is Basalt meal (sand) which is completely natural and harmless to nature.
  • Basalt is full of nutritious minerals and is also used in agriculture and horticulture to upgrade heavy clay soil.
  • Sideau® is a registered product of Agra Wool International, the Netherlands.
  • Size of the block: 23x10x7.5cm, weight 0.15kg
  • Size of the box : 57x24x33cm, weight 3 Kg
