For Sale: 100% Organic Compost. Fall is a great time to use compost when putting in new plantings for spring blooms, topping up existing gardens and mulching around trees and bushes for overwintering.
Organic Compost helps feed plants with micro-nutrients in a form that is slow in release and most natural for plants to uptake. The humus (fibre) content provides roots with an environment that is easier to grow in by creating a lighter soil which maintains more moisture with better drainage. Micro-organisms, which are beneficial to plants, are attracted to these areas and work to the added health of a garden.
This compost is a careful and through blend of horse manure, chicken manure and natural organic matter, with absolutely no chemical additives such as herbicides, pesticides or other toxic waste. All the components are completely broken down through decomposition to create a clean, non odorous, friable mix that it completely safe to use around home, garden and lawn.
Comes in clean, sturdy sacks of 20L of volume. 6,50€ per sack.
