Product Information

Homeland Multi-Purpose Compost offers the best planting conditions making it ideal for use all around the garden. It has been enriched with nutrients that will feed your plants for up to 4-5 weeks. It is also easier to re-wet and will hold onto moisture, giving excellent growing results.

Instructions for use: First put on a pair of gloves and rework the compost between your hands, so it regains its intended texture.

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.

 NB – The open structure and nutrient content of this compost may not be suitable for small, fine and difficult to germinate seeds. We always recommend using a dedicated seed sowing compost.

 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 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.

 

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.

 

Health & Safety advice:

  • Use in a well ventilated place and avoid breathing in dust.
  • Always wear gloves when gardening and wash hands after use.
