Compost adds nutrients to your plants and helps retain soil moisture and is often referred to as ‘black gold’ for your garden. It normally contains a mix of items that are high in nitrogen (grasses, weeds, plants, vegetable waste, coffee grounds) and high in carbon (leaves, wood chips, sawdust, shredded cardboard, newspaper).
Added into plant holes, bonemeal acts as a fertiliser and it is a great source of phosphorus which helps plants flower and helps new plants produce strong roots. Very good for root vegetables such as onions, garlic, carrots and parsnips. The nitrogen promotes lush green foliage. Easy for plants to absorb and benefits the plant for months.
