Specialist Mixes

Specialist Mixes

These mixes are suited to professional growers and keen gardeners alike. By making use of our extensive range of growing media ingredients, we can create bespoke mixes for more specific growing applications. We have worked closely with renowned Horticulturalist Susie Holmes, and specialist growers to produce a comprehensive range of growing media.

Importantly we can provide these mixes by the bulk bag (1000 ltrs) and smaller (60 ltr) bags, which is ideal for smaller specialist growers who do not require the minimum order larger quantities available from other suppliers.

To our extensive range of growing media (soils, composts, barks, peats etc) we can add the following to optimise growing conditions and ensure plant success:

  • Weevil control;
  • pH reducing/increasing compounds;
  • Slow release fertilisers (These will release nutrients gradually anywhere from 3 to 14 months as required);
  • Speciality fertiliser (gives the initial nutrient boost for first planting)
  • Dolomite (aka Mag lime) – ground limestone that is rich in magnesium (unlike normal garden lime which is just calcium carbonate);
  • Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate (reduces weight without compromising the growing media ie ideal for pots and planters that you may want to move around over the season)
  • Perlite (for aeration);
  • Vermiculite (to aid nutrient uptake and water retention);
  • Celcote (wetting agent – reduces need for watering by up to 25% without compromising growth of the plant);
  • 6mm grit (to aid drainage)

These can be added at various inclusion rates depending on the needs of the specific plants.

Please contact us to discuss you specific requirements.

We have worked with professional growers to create specialist mixes. You can purchase some of our more common mixes online, however if you require something that you cannot see here please do not hesitate to contact us and we can price up a bespoke mix for you:

  1. Soft Fruit Mix Dry
    Soft Fruit Mix
    From £112.80

    Soft fruit plants are relatively easy to grow. They require sun, shelter and free draining fertile soil.

    We blend both fine and coarse peat with pine bark, as well as mixing in a control release fertiliser that will last the growing season. Finally a base fertiliser is added to provide that initial nutrient boost. Plants must still be watered regularly after initial planting and during dry periods, and may benefit from further feeding during the season with something like tomato feed.

    NB This mix will suit most soft fruits apart from Blueberries who require a more ericaceous growing media. See our Blueberry Mix.

    20 litre bags are available subject to minimum order, please contact us for further details.

  2. Blueberry Mix Dry
    Blueberry Mix
    From £120.00

    Blueberries prefer a more acidic growing media. We have developed this ericaceous compost specifically for Blueberries. We blend fine and coarse peat with pine bark to create a low pH, free draining growing media. Finally we add a control release fertiliser (which is important where fertigation is not available) as well as a base fertiliser to give an initial nutrient boost.

    Blueberries like to be kept in damp (but not soaking wet) compost that is not allowed to dry out. Where you can, water with rainwater as tap water will raise the pH level.

    Multipurpose Compost
    From £96.00

    We blend peat with a base fertiliser and a wetting agent to optimise plant growth throughout the growing season

    (If you do not want to use a peat based compost we also mix a peat free alternative – Peat Free Multipurpose Compost, or you could try our green waste Peat Free Planting Compost).

    Available in Loose Loads & Bulk Bags.

    We combine Peat Free Planting Compost with fine bark and a natural additive which boosts Nitrogen levels to create a nutrient rich growing media.
