How to Use

First put on a pair of gloves and rework  the compost between your hands, so it  regains its intended texture.  Then you Inch re all set.

Pots, Containers & Hanging Baskets

  • Choose container with adequate drainage holes.  Place layer of grit in container and fill with compost.  For hanging baskets, line basket with moss or liner  and fill with compost
  • Plant with trailing plants around the edge and upright  plants in the middle
  • Water well

Beds & Borders

  • Dig a hole twice the size of root ball diameter and add  a layer of compost
  • Place plant in hole and back fill with compost
  • Firm compost around plant and water well

Potting

  • Water plant well and allow to drain
  • Allow enough space to accommodate roots
  • Remove from pot and plant in new container,  firming the compost gently around the roots
  • Once fully planted, water well

Sowing Seeds

  • Fill seed tray evenly with compost, firm gently and water
  • Sow seeds following seed pack instructions and cover tray  with glass/polythene to prevent drying out
  • Place in warm spot out of direct sunlight until seeds  have germinated
  • Remove glass/polythene and keep moist until seedlings  are ready for pricking out

This compost is specially rich in fertiliser and may  not be suitable for some seeds and young plants  which prefer lower fertiliser levels, so we  recommend The Gardener Inch s Seed & Potting-on  Mix for best results with these.

Seedlings / Pricking out

  • Prick out seedlings once they are large enough to handle
  • Hold seedling by the leaves to avoid damage and gently  tease the roots from the compost, using a dibber or pencil
  • Plant seedlings well apart to allow for growth
  • Water regularly until seedlings are ready for potting-on

Taking Cuttings

  • Fill a container with compost, firm gently and water
  • Make sloping cut in stem of cutting, just below a joint,  remove all bottom leaves and dip end of the cutting in  hormone rooting
  • powder
  • Make hole in the compost with pencil or dibber
  • Place cutting into hole and firm compost gently around it
  • Cover with a polythene bag to prevent drying out and  place in a warm spot out of direct sunlight, until cuttings have taken

Feeding

  • For best results pre-mix slow release granules into the compost before planting, this will provide your plants with a great source of feed at the roots
  • When plants are in bloom, it is a great idea to feed with a liquid plant food
  • Using both methods will ensure all your plants remain healthy, producing an abundance of beautiful flowers and foliage

General Advice

  • Store in a dry frost free place away from weed killers  and other garden chemicals
  • Reseal bag after use
  • Unsuitable for Ericaceous (lime hating) plants
  • Use in a well ventilated place and avoid breathing in dust
  • Always wear gloves when gardening and then wash hands after use
