GUIDELINES FOR USE
This compost/ soil improver is produced from recycled organic material and is screened to 0-25mm.
Professional horticulturists should seek advice from a specialist in compost use. More detailed guidelines are available from the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP, www.wrap.org.uk), the Growing Media Association and other organisations and specialists in the horticulture and composting industries.
Compost can be used to improve the soil when establishing grass/turf and planting beds and when planting trees and shrubs. It can also be combined with soil to improve backfill material in planting pits.
Compost can be applied to the soil surface to conserve soil moisture, suppress weeds and help minimise erosion.
Compost can be used in a range of blends with other substrates according to the application, e.g. cells in trays or pots. The formulation should be based on compost test results, such as nutrient content, and any other substrates used in the growing medium. Advice should be sought from a specialist in compost use.
This compost keeps best when stored in a cool, dry place.
Every effort has been made to ensure this compost contains no germs, sharp fragments, toxins or regenerative plant parts. However, the compost producer cannot guarantee they will never be present. As with all products of this type, wear gloves when handling and wash hands after use. During handling, avoid inhaling any dust or water vapour from it or ingesting any of it. These precautions also apply to operators of machines that spread compost.
