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 making composts: 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 Organic Blend Top Soil.
For levelling lawns: Use Levington Organic Blend Top Soil to produce a clean, level surface before sowing grass seed or laying turf or for filling in hollows in established lawns.
For beds and borders: Water the plant thoroughly. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Part fill the hole with a mixture of 50% soil and 50% compost. Ensure the plant is at the same level as in the ground. Fill in firmly, then water.
For containers: In windy positions, a loam-based compost will provide the weight needed to help keep patio pots and containers upright.
For 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 Organic Blend Top Soil to introduce a fresh, fertile soil in which plants can thrive.
