HOW TO USE

Beds and Borders:

  • Water plant thoroughly.  Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball.  
  • Part fill the hole with a mixture of 50% soil and 50% Levington Multi Purpose Compost with added John Innes. 
  • Ensure the plant is at the same level as in the pot.  Fill in firmly, then water.

Sowing Seeds:

  • Fill the seed tray with Levington Multi Purpose Compost with added John Innes and level off.  Firm lightly and water.
  • Sow seeds following pack instructions.  Cover the seed tray or container to retain water, making sure the tray is out of direct sunlight.
  • When the seedlings are ready to be transplanted, make sure they are picked up by the leaves, not by the stem or roots.
  • For sowing seeds we also recommend Levington Seed & Cutting Compost. 

Cuttings: 

  • Fill the pot with the compost, take the cutting (in the appropriate way according to the plant), water, cover and keep warm.  
  • For cuttings we also recommend Levington Seed & Cutting Compost.

Hanging Baskets:

  • Place the hanging basket on a flowerpot to keep it steady.  Line the basket if necessary and part fill it with compost.  
  • Insert plants through the sides of the basket where possible to ensure a ball of colour.  Fill the basket with compost and arrange plants on top with trailing ones around the sides.
  • After everything is planted lightly firm and water thoroughly.  

Containers:

  • Ensure that the container has sufficient drainage holes and then fill will compost.  Add your chosen flowers and firm lightly, then water thoroughly.  

Levington® Multi Purpose with added John Innes® compost provides all of the necessary food for up to 6 weeks.  After that time, water with Levington® Tomorite® Liquid Plant Food. Used by many professional and traditional gardeners for healthy plant establishment and growth.

WHAT IS JOHN INNES COMPOST?

Developed by Mr John Innes in the 1930’s it is still a popular choice which is favoured by traditional gardeners and has a strong fan club. John Innes compost is predominantly peat based but also includes sterilised loam and has a higher proportion of heavy particles like grit and sand than other composts and as a result is much heavier.
