Bord na Móna Growise John Innes No.2 Compost is a traditional mixture of loam, Irish peat and grit with balanced nutrients to ensure healthy growth and excellent moisture retention. It is ideal for potting on more established flowers and vegetables into larger pots and containers.
Bord na Móna Growise John Innes No.2 Compost is carefully balanced to meet the nutritional needs at this growth stage.
Put an inch or two of compost in a pot. Remove the plant from its old pot by turning it upside down and gently tapping the rim. Put the plant in the new pot and add compost. Firm the compost with your fingertips, leaving room at the top of the pot for watering. Water the plant and allow it to drain. Cover the pot to retain moisture and keep it warm.
Line the basket well with moss or another liner, making sure that there are 4-5 holes for drainage. Starting with trailing plants inserted through holes in the liner, arrange the plants from the bottom upwards, filling the basket with compost as you go. Make holes big enough to hold the root ball and firm the compost around the roots of each plant. Upright plants should be planted in the middle of The basket, the tallest in the centre. Water the basket thoroughly to start with and then make sure it does not dry out.
Bord na Móna Growise John Innes No. 2 Compost is not suitable for ericaceous plants such as rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias. For this group of plants you should use Bord na Móna Growise Ericaceous Compost.
