Product description

A peat-free compost formulated for sowing seeds, striking cuttings and delicate seedlings. Encourages stronger root development. Child and pet friendly

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.

Seed sowing Fill a clean seed tray with Levington© Peat Free Seed & Cutting Compost. Level off with your hand or a ruler. Firm lightly and water using a fine rose. Sow the seeds thinly and evenly. Cover the seeds when necessary with their own depth of compost firming lightly. For smaller seeds such as petunia or lobelia, there is no need to cover with compost. To retain water, cover the seed tray or container with either glass or polythene. Make sure the tray is kept out of direct sunlight. Follow the recommendations on the seed packet for temperatures, covering the seed and for shading. When the seedlings are ready to be transplanted into individuals pots, take care to handle them by the leaves and not the stems or roots.

Rooting cuttings Take the cutting in the appropriate way according to the plant. Fill the container with Levington© Peat Free Seed & Cutting Compost. Place the cutting in a hold in the compost. Firm lightly water the compost, cover to retain moisture and keep warm. Do not cover hairy-leaved plants like geraniums and saintpaulia. Keep in a warm, well-lit place, out of direct sunlight. Water again only when compost dries out.

Growing on After 4 to 6 weeks, plants should be potted up using Levington© John Innes No 2. After that, maintain strong growth by feeding with Miracle-Gro© plant food.

Where to use Our peat-free seed and cutting compost is ideal for all young plants. It has been specially developed, with a high phosphate formula and 14 vital minerals for optimum root growth. Together with a healthy moisture balance, it is a great start for your plants.
