Biochar Seed Compost
In this mix
Biochar 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. The compost also retains moisture so the need for watering is less too.
- 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 sown
- 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)
