What is Active Bio-Life?

Active Bio-Life is the biological component of our Westland Planting Soil for flowers and vegetables. Our soil isn’t just soil, it’s as alive as your plants, bustling and thriving with organic life. Active Bio-Life works 24/7 create a healthy environment for plants.


How Active Bio-Life works

Active Bio-Life supports plant health in several ways. Firstly, it supports natural defences within the plant, as it’s rich in nourishing organic matter. Next, it helps release locked up nutrients for plants to take up, such as potash for vibrant blooms and phosphorous for vegetable growth. Finally, it releases millions of beneficial organisms which supports the soil’s bio-life. This results in healthier soil all round and the best foundations for strong, healthy plants.
