What Type of Compost Is Best for Plug Plants?

One of the most important factors in growing young plants is using the right type of potting compost. This aspect of bringing on baby plants is often overlooked, largely due to a lack of availability of appropriate compost.

The compost available in most garden centres can be unreliable at best. We here at Growtanical have used it in the past and found that many plants just don’t take to it at all, others have even died. These general use composts don’t have the ability to hold moisture or fertiliser very well, resulting in a need to water twice a day and hungry plants that are weeks behind other plants grown in the professional grade compost.

Growtanical make the same compost we use to give baby plants the very best start in life available to our customers. It is suitable for bedding plants, perennials, shrubs, fruits and vegetables, but NOT for ericaceous plants such as Rhododendrons, Camellias and Azalea.

Growtanical potting compost contains a wetting agent and a balanced fertiliser, meaning there is no need to feed your plants for six weeks after potting. Our compost also offers stable pH for six months. One 10L bag of our potting compost is more than enough to plant on 30 x 9cm pots, or 2 x 5L pots.
