When to use

How to use

Use straight from the bag, it’s as easy as that. When filling or potting, firm lightly. Keep the compost moist and do not let it dry out. Do not leave plants standing in water.

For containers: Part fill the new pot with compost, place the plant in the centre and top up with compost. Firm lightly, water thoroughly and let drain.

For hanging baskets: Line the basket if required with moss or other liner and part fill with compost. Plant up with trailing plants towards the edge and upright plants in the middle. Top up with compost, firm lightly, water thoroughly and let drain.

For seedlings: Fill the seed tray with Levington Original Multi Purpose Compost and level off. Firm lightly and water. Sow seeds following pack instructions.

For cuttings: Push cuttings into the compost. Firm lightly, water thoroughly and let drain. Keep moist and in a warm place out of direct sunlight.

For beds and borders: Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Part fill the hole with equal quantities of soil and compost. Ensure the plant is at the same level as in the pot.
