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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
