For pots and
smaller planters we recommend using our 30L bagged
product, available at various retail stores listed
on our 'where to buy' page. This compost is always
very finely screened and more suitable than our
bulk compost which can be a little coarser
especially in the early spring when fine screening
is more difficult due to wet conditions.
To enhance potted plants remove as much soil as
possible from the top of the pot without damaging
the roots and replace with Earthbank fish compost.
For potting and planter mixes use 1 part Earthbank
fish compost to 2 parts standard potting soil
blend. For light feeders use 1 part fish compost
to 3 parts standard potting soil blend. The
compost and soil should be mixed thoroughly.
Earthbank fish compost, or any compost should not
be used, or considered a replacement for soil.
Compost is a soil amendment, it is not soil. The
maximum mixture we recommend is up to 50% compost
and 50% soil blend. This should only be considered
for heavy feeders that are annuals. Generally
speaking, because our compost is so rich in
nutrients it is not necessary to 'overuse' it in
