How to Use

First put on a pair of gloves and rework the compost between your hands, so it regains its intended texture. Then you’re all set.

Pots, Containers & Hanging Baskets

Choose container with adequate drainage holes. Place layer of grit in container and fill with compost. For hanging baskets, line basket with moss or liner and fill with compost
Plant with trailing plants around the edge and upright plants in the middle
Water well

Beds & Borders

Dig a hole twice the size of root ball diameter and add a layer of compost
Place plant in hole and back fill with compost
Firm compost around plant and water well

Potting

Water plant well and allow to drain
Allow enough space to accommodate roots
Remove from pot and plant in new container, firming the compost gently around the roots
Once fully planted, water well

Sowing Seeds

Fill seed tray evenly with compost, firm gently and water
Sow seeds following seed pack instructions and cover tray with glass/polythene to prevent drying out
Place in warm spot out of direct sunlight until seeds have germinated
Remove glass/polythene and keep moist until seedlings are ready for pricking out

This compost is specially rich in fertiliser and may not be suitable for some seeds and young plants which prefer lower fertiliser levels, so we recommend The Gardener’s Seed & Potting-on Mix for best results with these.

Seedlings / Pricking out

Prick out seedlings once they are large enough to handle
Hold seedling by the leaves to avoid damage and gently tease the roots from the compost, using a dibber or pencil
Plant seedlings well apart to allow for growth
Water regularly until seedlings are ready for potting-on

Taking Cuttings

Fill a container with compost, firm gently and water
Make sloping cut in stem of cutting, just below a joint, remove all bottom leaves and dip end of the cutting in hormone rooting powder
Make hole in the compost with pencil or dibber
Place cutting into hole and firm compost gently around it
Cover with a polythene bag to prevent drying out and place in a warm spot out of direct sunlight, until cuttings have taken

Feeding

For best results pre-mix slow release granules into the compost before planting, this will provide your plants with a great source of feed at the roots
When plants are in bloom, it is a great idea to feed with a liquid plant food
Using both methods will ensure all your plants remain healthy, producing an abundance of beautiful flowers and foliage

General Advice

Store in a dry frost free place away from weed killers and other garden chemicals
Reseal bag after use
Unsuitable for Ericaceous (lime hating) plants
Use in a well ventilated place and avoid breathing in dust
Always wear gloves when gardening and then wash hands after use
