Potting Mix

Potted plants need special care if they are to grow properly. As they must survive in a very restricted area, they are a little more challenging to nurture. In particular, they require a balance between a comfortable water level and good drainage to prevent the soil becoming waterlogged and rotting the roots. It therefore makes sense to grow them in a light, well aerated potting mix that will not inhibit root growth yet contain an anchor of nutrients for healthy, disease free plants.

Farmyard Organic’s Potting mix offers all these requirements and is made up of 50% compost and 50% large particles of composted bark (12-25mm), making it fluffy enough to provide good drainage. It is ideal for potting out of plants.
