Compost to a gardener means two things.
The first is plant matter that has been decomposed and can be recycled as a fertilizer, mulch or soil amendment. Compost containers and accelerators, such as Garotta, are always available to help with recycling.
The second is a kind of medium in which we grow plants. Seed, potting, multi-purpose, bulb, lime-free [ericaceous] and peat free compost are the most popular ones and all are available at Cleeve Nursery.
Cleeve Nursery Multipurpose Own-Brand Compost
It contains added soil and bark fines to reduce the peat content, so you have a better compost. This is a multipurpose compost mixed to our own recipe and gives exceptional results. Expect to find that our Cleeve Nursery Multipurpose is coarser than others and this is why it grows an excellent roots system!
Simply, use the compost we use. We know it works!
Cleeve Nursery Compost Tea
Cleeve Nursery was the first retail outlet in the UK to supply amateur gardeners with freshly brewed Compost Tea. This natural way of micro-feeding plants, so that they remain healthy and disease free, has been practiced since 2004 on all our plants with significant environmental impact savings.
Grow-bags are an easy way to provide the right compost for your tomato plants.
However, they can be used for growing far more than tomatoes! Strawberries, peppers, beans, lettuce, herbs and even flowers will grow in them.
Grow-Sure planters are ideal for patio gardens and even balconies. These are extra large volume and make it easier and more productive to grow plants when compared to the standard grow bag.
