Benefits and uses
- Acts as a slow-release fertilizer, providing essential nutrients to plants over an extended period, unlike synthetic fertilizers that quickly dissipate and can be washed away.
- Enhances water and nutrient retention due to its porous and spongy texture.
- Improves soil aeration and drainage, promoting healthier root development.
- Guards against wind and water erosion, safeguarding valuable topsoil.
- Supports a diverse range of soil bacteria, including those that naturally combat plant diseases.
- Helps regulate soil temperature for optimal plant growth.
Promotes the formation of soil aggregates, as soil microorganisms release sticky secretions that bind soil particles together.
General soil improvement:
- Apply a minimum of 5cm (2in) of compost across vegetable and flower beds to create an ideal growing environment.
- Incorporate the compost by either digging it into the soil or layering it on top. Natural processes, such as weather and worm activity, will further distribute the compost.
- Use in autumn or spring, or both, for maximum benefit. Apply 2-3 weeks before planting in the spring.
- Roses particularly benefit from the addition of compost.
- When planting potted plants or seedlings, include compost in the planting holes for enhanced nutrient availability.
Spread compost in a ring around the tree, beginning 60cm (24in) away from the trunk and extending 30cm (12in) beyond the drip line (where the leaf canopy ends).
- Rake the compost into the soil or create shallow holes at regular intervals around the tree to incorporate it.
- Create a homemade potting mixture for seeds using our compost. Due to its nutrient-rich nature, use small amounts to avoid overwhelming the seedlings.
- Sieve the compost finely and mix it with equal parts sand and topsoil. Instead of topsoil other products can be used such as coir, composted bark, leaf mould or woodchip.
- Compost provides resistance to fungal diseases like damping off, making it beneficial for seedlings raised in greenhouses.
