John Innes Mixes

John Innes Mixes

John Innes composts offer significant advantages over other potting medias due to their weight and trace element content. The loam element of the compost forms the base of plant nutrition with the clay absorbing and releasing nutrients as required. The peat in the mix improves aeration and water retention. A specialist base fertiliser is added to provide the wide spectrum of plant nutrients needed for balanced growth including Nitrogen, Potash and Phosphates. Finally an element of lime is added to achieve the best pH for optimum plant growth.

We have developed our own range of John Innes composts in consultation with renowned Horticulturalist Susie Holmes. They have been put through rigorous testing at the National Institute of Agricultural Botany’s East Malling Research Centre and performed as well as 3 of the leading John Innes manufacturers.

We can supply John Innes 1,2 and 3 in loose loads, bulk bags and 20 ltr bags (subject to a minimum order). Which compost you require will be determined by whether you are germinating seedlings, potting on or planting more established plants.

The benefit of choosing our John Innes composts over alternatives will be felt by specialist growers and amateur gardeners alike. We mix all of our products at our own site in small quantities and so the quality and consistency of every batch that goes out is assured. Furthermore, smaller specialist growers and private gardeners can benefit from the option of taking small volumes of compost, be it as little as one bulk bags or a few small bags, as opposed to having to purchase bulk loads in one go which may be difficult to handle and store.
