Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What are the differences between John Innes Composts?

A. John Innes Composts are designed to be a life partner for plants. John Innes Seed Sowing Compost has a small amount of nutrients to encourage germination. John Innes No1 has a little more nutrients, perfect for transplanting seedlings. John Innes No2 is used for potting on young plants and John Innes No3, which has the most nutrients, is best used for final potting up of plants. John Innes Ericaceous is suitable for all acid loving (lime-hating) plants.

Q. Will my pets or wildlife be attracted to this product?

A. John Innes No 1 Young Plant Compost does not contain any organic elements so shouldn’t be attractive to animals

Q. Can I use this compost for my houseplants?

A. John Innes No1 Young Plant Compost is perfect for potting on seedlings and young plants. For any other job choose a Multi-Purpose compost or one that is specific to your requirements—for example Westland Houseplant Potting Mix
