Frequently asked questions

Q. Some of the material has dispersed whilst placing the pot in the water – is this normal?

A. Yes, you can minimise the amount of compost that escapes by applying a layer of horticulture grit on top of the Aquatic Compost and also wetting the compost before filling the planter/basket or container.
