The compost or soil you choose to grow your flowers in will have a big impact on how well they grow.
Choosing the right compost for growing flowers is easy with our help:
Flowers in pots, containers or hanging baskets

Alternatively you could use:
- Gro-Sure Container & Basket Compost
- Westland Multi-Purpose Compost with added John Innes

Flowers in Borders
Perennials grown in beds and borders need a boost yearly and the best way to do this is to improve your soil by mulching. You could use Westland Soil Conditioner or Gro-Sure Farmyard Manure on top of the soil, near to established plants and allow the worms and soil organisms to work it into the soil.
If you’re creating a new bed from an area that had been previously used for something else it’s important to add some organic matter before planting. Spread Westland Soil Conditioner or Gro-Sure Farmyard Manure over the surface of the dug area and work it into the soil with a fork. The high organic content also encourages the activity of beneficial soil dwelling organisms including worms.
