How to Use

How to use Garden Compost with added Grit...

Dig it in to the soil for immediate benefits to the soil characteristics.

For first use on heavy, undisturbed soils, double-dig the ground to break up any soil lumps and incorporate the Garden Compost evenly throughout the soil, from the bottom of the trench up to the soil surface. Aim to incorporate approximately a depth of 150 - 200mm of Garden Compost into the top 300 – 400mm of heavy soil.

For lighter cultivations on pre-established beds, dig a depth of approximately 70 - 100mm of Garden Compost into the top fork depth of soil to continue to build soil humus and structure year on year.

When to use Garden Compost...

Garden Compost is best incorporated with soils from late autumn through to spring and left to settle for a couple of weeks before planting. It is suitable for use all year round and to be applied annually.

Product Guidance

Product Guidance

  • Ideally use within 1 year of purchase.
  • As with all gardening activities, please wear gloves and wash hands when finished and before eating or drinking any thing.
  • Store unused products away from potential contamination such as chemicals or weed killers.
  • To avoid danger of suffocation, keep bags away from babies and children.
  • As with all natural materials, photos may vary slightly from the actual product
  • Every effort has been made to ensure the compost contains no germs, sharp fragments, toxins or regenerative plant parts. However the compost producer can not guarantee that they will never be present. As with all products of this type, wear gloves when handling and wash hands after use.
  • Some animals may be attracted to manures – manure can be dug in to reduce the attraction although it will not be harmful to them.
  • During storage, organic materials may develop a white mould, this is completely natural and harmless and will soon disappear when agitated.
  • When soil is disturbed and organic matter applied, mushrooms and other types on fungi may temporarily appear. This is great news as the natural soil web is returning to your garden, just hoe them over and they will disappear. They are harmless.
