Hand mixed with:
- Coco coir
An environmentally conscious alternative to peat-based products that are difficult to produce sustainably due to over-harvesting of peat bogs. Coco coir is a natural waste product, using the part of the coconut that would usually be disposed of. Provides the main basis to the soil mix and is known for having excellent drainage properties!
Made from pieces of volcanic glass that are heated until they pop - providing an expanded lightweight granule. Gives aeration to the mix as well as aiding in water retention. Perlite is also amazing as a propogation tool!
- Orchid bark
Named as such as it is commonly used as a substrate for orchids - actually comes from coniferous trees and is sustainably sourced. Adds a bit of much needed chunk to the mix which aerates and provides drainage.
- Worm castings
A super effective natural fertiliser that is a byproduct of worms breaking down natural materials - it is effectively worm poop! Worm castings make your plants healthier and stronger, leading to higher rates of root growth and increased resistance to pests and disease.
- Horticultural charcoal
Acts as a soil conditioner, ridding the soil of toxins and aiding the roots in uptaking nutrients. Charcoal is also extremely porous so can help absorb any over-watering blunders!
