HOW TO USE
Beds and Borders
Use Levington® Essentials Top Soil straight from the bag to build up beds and borders. Dig in this fertile blend to enrich your tired existing soil with its high organic matter content. No lime has been added to Levington® Essentials Top Soil and it is suitable for improving the soil around Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Heathers and other ericaceous plants.
Replacing Sick Soil
Soil in greenhouses that has developed a build-up of pests and diseases or soil that has grown roses or strawberries for a number of years, may need replacing if new plants are to establish. Use Levington® Essentials Top Soil to introduce a fresh, fertile soil in which plants can thrive.
Use Levington® Essentials Top Soil to produce a clean, level surface before sowing grass seed or laying turf or for filling in hollows in established lawns.
Due to its high organic matter content, this top quality soil is ideal for mixing with base dressings to make a loam-based compost. To enrich it add Miracle-Gro Slow Release Plant Food granules at the rate of 25g per 10 litres of soil. For alpines and other plants that need increased drainage, add 1 part coarse grit or washed sharp sand to 3 parts of Levington® Essentials Top Soil.
WHERE TO USE
It is ideal for creating new beds and borders, replacing old soil, levelling lawns, and making compost.
Use in a well ventilated place and avoid breathing in dust. Always wear gloves when gardening and then wash hands after use.
