Tips on using seed compost

You can use the compost straight from the bag.

  • Place it in seed tray or pot. Be very careful not to over compact – simply tapping the container on a hard surface is enough.
  • Place seeds on top.
  • Cover with the same depth of compost as thickness of seed. So if seed is 1 mm thick, cover with 1 mm of compost.
  • Don’t over-water. Coir has excellent water holding capacities. We recommend watering little and often. The compost may seem dry on top but will still be wet underneath, so it’s always worth double-checking before watering.

Tips for additional feeding

As with other mediums and composts your plants will, over a period of time, use up all the available nutrients -  it’s a good idea to feed them to keep them productive and lush! We have two great organic fertilisers - our Organic Garden Fertiliser Pellets -  a well tried and tested slow release fertiliser or try the NuGo Liquid feed for an instant plant pick-me-up!
