J. Arthur Bower’s Top Soil is made from natural loam blended with nutrient rich organic matter. It is ideal for topping up existing
borders, creating raised beds for vegetables, salads and herbs and creating new lawns.
Make sure you fork the top soil into the existing soil so that it is well blended. It is not a good idea to just spread the top soil
over the existing soil as the drainage properties may be different.
The top soil contains coarse organic matter and some stones – this is essential to keep the structure of the soil open and to prevent compaction. For hungry plants add Farmyard Manure. For permanent vegetable plots follow a system of crop rotation.
For cut-and-come again salads, parsley, coriander and chives mix top soil with a multi-purpose compost. For thyme, marjoram and other Mediterranean herbs mix top soil with horticultural sand.
J. Arthur Bower’s Top Soil can be forked into the existing soil prior to laying turf or sowing seed. Rake over, if sowing seed, to remove large stones and coarse material.
