Fertile Fibre’s Seed Compost is an ideal growing medium for sowing seed, planting cuttings and propagation. With the low levels of Fertile Fibre’s unique nutrient base and incorporating vermiculite’s excellent insulating properties it is perfect for germination and root development.
Our compost is especially formulated to give your seeds or cuttings the best possible start.
How to sow seed with Fertile Fibre compost
Directions for using:
First fill a seed tray level with the top, or if using a pot just below the top rim, and give one tap on the worksurface.
Then place the seeds or cutting in the tray, being careful not to press the seed down to near the bottom. Once all the seed or cutting have been planted water lightly, with a rose on your watering can if possible.
For maximium benefit: once roots are established on the plant, and to grow the plant on further, pot up into Fertile Fibre’s Potting Compost.
Please be aware not to overwater coir, as it has excellent water retention properties. To avoid the risk of water logging follow the ‘little and often’ principle.
