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

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
