Use straight from the bag for plants at all growth stages. Once in use, always keep the Erin Excel Tub & Basket Compost moist but, do not allow plants to stand in water.

Tubs, Pots & Containers

Half fill the container with the compost, place the plants evenly inside while filling around the roots with more compost. Gently firm the compost, water-in well but do not saturate.

Hanging Baskets

Partially fill the basket with the compost. Begin by placing the plants through the liner into the basket sides, taking care not to damage the roots. Add more compost and plants until the basket is full. Firm carefully and water thoroughly.

Potting On & Re-potting Houseplants

Partly fill the pot with Erin Excel Tub & Basket Compost. Make sure you have chosen the correct size pot to comfortably hold the plant roots. Place the plant in the centre. Fill the surrounding area with more compost, firming with your fingertips tightly around the root-ball. Water-in well but do not saturate.
