Bed & Border Planting Mixes

Bed & Border Planting Mixes

When creating new beds and borders, or topping up existing areas, soil alone may not contain the required nutrients.  Using pure compost could make the media prone to water-logging, and will require more frequent toppng up as the compost rots down.  With this in mind we have created a range of mixes that contain our premium sandy loam topsoil, to provide body and longevity to the growing media, and soil conditioners to inject the nutrients needed to optimise plant growth.

If you have enough existing soil and just need a nutrient boost have a look at our 50/50 mix of soil conditioners.

These mixes are general purpose and can be used for most plants and vegetables.  If you require a mix for more specific planting please visit our Professional Growing Media page.

    TS1 / Manure / 6mm Grit
    From £100.00

    A 45:45:10 mix of our premium sandy loam topsoil, well-rotted stable manure and 6mm grit. The sandy loam is the free draining body of the mix, the manure adds vital nutrients and the grit helps cut through the growing media to aid drainage.

    We source our manure from local stables and it will be either shavings or straw based. Whilst this is a natural product and therefore consistency will vary, we endeavour to ensure that all manure delivered to our customers is well rotted. Please be aware that it may still retain some heat so we recommend that you put the growing media down a few weeks before planting. If using as a mulch be careful not to allow the manure / mix to touch the stalks of the plant.  If you would like a mix that is nutrient rich and can be planted into immediately we recommend our TS1 / Peat Free Planting Compost mixes.
