How it works

  • It helps improve the chemical and physical properties of your garden soil - keys to healthy plants
  • Organic compost helps lighten heavy clay soils to improve water and nutrient penetration
  • It also adds bulk to light sandy soils, holding moisture so the soil remains damp for longer after watering or rain

How to use

Improving soil in vegetable & flower beds

  • Add to existing garden beds once or twice a year at the rate of one 25L bag per 5 square metres (1cm deep)
  • Thoroughly work it into the top 10 - 15cm of soil, then level the bed with a rake
  • Sow seeds or transplant seedlings or more mature plants according to specific label instructions
  • Water thoroughly after planting and then as required
  • After two months, feed with a Scotts Pure Organic Plant Food.
