PEAT FREE COMPOST
WELCOME TO THE FIRST RETAIL PEAT FREE RANGE OF COMPOSTS WITHOUT GREEN WASTE AND TIMBER RESIDUES !
Vermiculated and loam based formulations blended with high quality natural materials and organic fertilisers.
The absence of green waste avoids contamination from CLOPYRALID, a lawn weedkiller that invariably finds a way into municipal compost wastes and can be responsible for poor growth performance in a wide range of plants.
The carefully balanced formulation ensures the optimum retention of water and an open structure for air to circulate and promote good growing performance.
Vermiculite is blended within the formulation to promote air filled porosity as well as ensuring water carrying capacity. Nutrient retention within the compost is enhanced by the high Cation Exchange Capacity of vermiculite to adsorb Ammonium, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium, all essential nutrients to ensure growth
The Sterilised Loam Base within the compost contains clay, humus and trace elements and exhibiting good Cation Exchange Capacity also acts as a reservoir for plant foods. This ‘buffering capacity’ can allow for a degree of under feeding and in this respect is superior to a peat based compost.
Peat free compost will perform differently to a peat based compost, so always ensure sufficient watering for optimum growing results.
The Qualigro Peat Free range provides specifically for Potting, Ericaceous and Seed and Cutting requirements and are described below
