Product details

Product information

  • This premium compost is ideal for use all around the garden
  • Composition - 45% Peat
  • First put on a pair of gloves and rework compost between your hands, so it retains its intended texture. Seedlings/pricking out: Pick out seedlings once they are large enough to handle. Hold seedlings by the leaves to avoid damage and tease out root using a dibber or pencil. Plant seedlings apart to allow for growth. Water regularly until the seeds are ready to be potted on. Potting: Water plant well and allow to drain before potting. Allow enough space to accommodate the roots, remove from pot and plant in container, firming the compost gently around the roots, once fully planted, water well. Taking cuttings: Fill seed tray evenly with compost, firm gently and water, make a sloping cut in the stem of the cutting and remove all bottom leaves, dip the end of the cutting in a hormone rooting powder to encourage rooting, make a hole in the compost with a pencil/dibber, place cutting in the hole and firm compost gently around it, cover the tray with polythene or glass to prevent drying out and place in a warm spot, away from direct sunlight until the cuttings have taken. Hanging baskets: Line the basket and fill with compost. Plant with trailing plants around the outside and upright plants in the middle and water well.
