General Tips

  • Do not allow your compost to dry out
  • Don't allow your pots to stand in water
  • Remove dead flowers to keep your plants growing healthily

Improving Soil Quality

Ensure soil is moist and free from weeds.

Spread organic garden compost over the soil surface to a depth of at least 5cm. If the soil is very heavy, chalky or sandy, apply the organic garden compost to a depth of 10cm.

Dig organic garden compost into the soil, working methodically across the area starting at one end of the plot and working across to the other.

For best results this should be carried out a month before planting.

Beds & Borders

Organic garden compost is ideal for use in beds and borders.

Organic garden compost adds nutrients and organic matter to enhance the soil where beds and borders have shrunk and adds life to tired soils. Organic garden compost should be mixed 50:50 with existing soil.

Organic garden compost is also recommended for new raised beds and can be mixed 50:50 with existing soil or used on its own.

Roses & Other Shrubs

Dig a planting hole to the depth and size recommended for the rose or shrub e.g twice the diameter of the root ball.

Add a mixture of 50:50 organic garden compost and soil to the planting hole, plant the rose or shrub according to instruction, watering well once planted.

Top Dressing

Use a 50:50 mixture of organic garden compost and soil as a top dressing for established plants such as roses, shrubs and perennials.
