More Details

GroChar Seed Compost combines organic coir with a peat free, unique biochar complex. It has a fine texture that is perfect for propagation and is ideal for getting your seeds off to a flying start.

We trialled it at Perch Hill and it's now our compost of choice so we don't have to continue to use peat. It produced good germination and potting on results.

  • 8 litre bag
  • Remember to sow seed sparingly to make it easier to prick out later.
  • Gently water the top of the compost with a spray bottle or watering can fitted with a fine rose. Doing this first avoids disturbing the seed once you have sown them.
  • Cover the seed lightly with compost, as a rough rule of thumb seeds should be planted 1½ times deep as they are in size; (the larger the seed the deeper it needs to be planted).
  • Also as a helpful hint remember to write the seed variety and date sown on a plant tag and stick it in the side of the tray or pot, so you don't lose track of what you have sown.
