Mr Fothergill’s Launches the Ideal Compost for Seed Sowing Success

Mr Fothergill’s Launches the Ideal Compost for Seed Sowing Success
This season saw the launch of Mr Fothergill’s Enriched Seed Compost, formulated to ensure success when growing from seed.
The compost is 100% peat free being a blend of coconut husk fibres (a waste by-product of coconut processing) with added slow-release nutrients to ensure healthy seed germination and seedling development. The formula also includes powdered seaweed, a natural growth stimulant and source of micronutrients.

Mr Fothergill’s Enriched Seed Compost is supplied as a dry, compressed block making it light and convenient. The production process means it is free of weeds and pests. To rehydrate to its 10 litres usable state, it just needs 4 litres of clean water to be added in the bag provided. In just 5 minutes the water is taken up and, with a little mixing, is ready.

“The compost formulation is the result of months of trials and testing to get the blend of coir and balance of nutrients just right for seed germination”, says Ian Cross, Head of Retail Marketing. Adding, “our trials team have been very impressed with this compost, from the texture to the results they are getting”.

Each compost block has a retail price of £4.99.
