Earth Cycle Compost is a nutrient dense organic soil conditioner based on composted plant material. Ideal, all-round product for your general gardening and horticultural needs. Incorporation improves drainage and aeration in heavy clay soils and adds body to light sandy soils, helping to retain moisture and nutrients during warm weather. It improves soil fertility by adding vital humus and plant nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphate, potash and trace elements, encouraging healthy plant growth. Available: 40 litres x 1, 10 or 20 bags. Nutrients are released over many weeks as the compost breaks down naturally in the soil. Such natural slow release sustains strong root growth, flowering and fruiting and keeps foliage green and healthy. It also boosts beneficial soil life leading to healthy soil microbial activity that helps to naturally suppress plant diseases. Compost enhances moisture retention in soil, leading to improved drought resistance meaning that more moisture is available for your plants during dry periods which is critical for them to flourish.
