Give your seedlings a strong start with this seed compost. Containing Grochar, coir fibre and a mild blend of vegetable nutrients, it nourishes young plants and boosts healthy root formation helping them to 'take' quickly when planted out. Available:8 litres or 60 litres.
About Grochar: A modern take on a 2000-year-old tradition, GroChar was inspired by Amazonian Indians who used charred plant matter to enrich their poor, infertile soils. It is produced in the UK by a patented, clean technique which captures up to 70% of the carbon that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere by burning or decaying. It remains in the soil almost indefinitely, improving soil structure and water penetration, helping retention of nitrogen and continuing to absorb additional carbon from the air. Enriched with mycorrhizal fungi, seaweed and wormcasts, to provide a strong fertile base for plants to flourish.
