Probably the most used potting compost: multi-purposed compost. Garden plants grow best in soil with balanced nutrients, minerals and pH level. Some gardens have acidic soils and must be enriched by adding lime. Adding compost makes garden plants perfectly vigour and disease resistant. Garden plants perform best when routine liquid feeding is applied every 3-4 weeks. General compost is also known as multi-purpose compost. Multi-purpose compost from RHS SylvaGrow suitable for a wide range of uses around the garden. If you’re planting small patio pots, hanging baskets, herbs, vegetables and flowering bedding plants. We offer two different varieties of multi-purpose compost:
- Regular multi-purpose compost
- Organic multi-purpose compost
Ripley Nurseries also offers peat-free compost. The high use of peat caused a decline in natural wildlife habitats. If you desire peat-free composts, Ripley Nurseries can help you out. Peat-free compost is based on compost bark, coir and waste materials from parks. The lack of peat doesn’t impact the growth of garden plants. Many gardeners have been using peat-free compost and have not experienced germination or seedling growth problems. Peat-free compost tends to be a little more expensive. Check the label on the peat-free bag to see if it is recommended for your garden use. If you have any questions about using peat-free compost, please contact us.
