ORGANIC POND SOIL & COCO HUSK CHIP
This product is a compressed briquette of cocopeat and coconut husk chip with natural rooting hormones to help your lilies, oxygenating plants and marginals to get established quickly. It's nutrient free, so it will not encourage blanket weed or algae.
To re-hydrate to full volume, simply place in a large bowl (at least 15 litres capacity) and pour warm water over the top and allow it to stand for 15-20 minutes. If you put a bit too much water in, or if you have time available, leave it to stand for longer - even overnight. It will soak up all the water and expand to a large block.
Then break it up with your fingers to introduce air and maximise the volume. Line your baskets with hessian squares and top dress your planted basket with a good 2 inches of fine grit.
A newly planted basket should be placed just below the surface of the pond (on bricks) for a few days to help the substrate get saturated and for the plants get acclimatized. Then progressively lower the basket as the plants grow.
This is the most environmentally friendly way to buy pond soil. A 10 tonne truck of bagged pond soil, such as peat moss, may contain about 35,000 litres of growing media, whilst a 10 tonne truck of compressed briquettes contains about 180,000 litres of growing media. Less trucks on our congested roads and less containers on our high seas.
Thank you for viewing our products, we look forward to serving you.
