Description

Bayview Multi-Purpose Compost is a balanced blend of Sedge and Sphagnum peat, with added plant foods. It is great for general garden use, and for a huge range of plants. This compost is 100% peat based, it does not contain any green waste materials, or wood fibre fillers. 

This compost can be used for hanging baskets, containers and troughs, and for sowing and cuttings along with general gardening use. 


Use for hanging baskets, containers and troughs:

Line the hanging basket with either moss, or black perforated polythene before filling with the compost. Geraniums, fuchsias, lobelias and ivy both “work” and “do” very well in hanging baskets. 

The compost can be used to very good effect in tubs, window boxes, and troughs.


Use for sowing and cuttings:

For sowing, compost should first be leveled, lightly pressed and watered in the tray, before seeds are sown. Sowing should be done thinly and evenly, seeds covered over with compost and lightly firmed. Very small seeds do not need covering.

Seed trays ought to be covered over with glass or polyethylene to keep in moisture. Trays should not be in direct sunlight until the seeds begin to shoot.

When seedlings are large enough to be handled they should be transplanted into larger trays/pots, always being handled by their leaves (not their stems), gently firmed and watered thoroughly. Cuttings should be placed, firmed and watered similarly for best results. Also keep cuttings in warm and moist conditions.


Use for potting and planting:

Potting plants should first be watered and then fill the pot partly with compost. Plants can then be positioned into the centre. 

Fill the remaining pot space around the plants with compost, carefully firming and watering. When planting out shrubs, roses, and trees, use a half mixture of compost and garden soil in the planting hole.


Compost Usage:

Compost can be used straight from our bag for cuttings, sowing, potting, hanging baskets, troughs, window boxes and tubs. 

For potting or filling seed trays compost should be only lightly firmed, and keep it moist at all times, avoid drying out. 

Our compost contains all the essential plant foods needed for 4-6 weeks after planting. After this time it is advisable to use a liquid plant feed to maintain good healthy growth.


Compost suitable plants:

Shrubs, herbs, Bedding plants, houseplants, and vegetables will do well in our compost. 

It should be noted that this compost is unsuitable for rhododendrons, azaleas, heathers, and other lime-hating plants.


Why use 100% peat based compost: 

100% peat based compost is known as the compost for professionals. You can expect consistently good results from this product. 

When it comes to performance, peat compost is superior to other materials for a number of reasons. Peat compost holds water and nutrients well, therefore saving on water and fertilisers. On top of this, peat is naturally free of human and plant pathogens, it also contains beneficial microbes which help to prevent fungal diseases.
