New Miracle-Gro Compost

Following the Gardening Press event the nice people from Miracle-Gro have sent me 5 sacks of their new Miracle-Gro Peat Free Premium Fruit & Vegetable Compost to trial. 

Why so many sacks of compost you may ask, well I was discussing the square foot gardening beds and the experiments I wanted to try this year and they saw how much compost I would need for the beds and have sent me ample for that and to also to trial on other growing projects.    

This new product is part of the high-performing Miracle-Gro peat-free range. With its unique 3-part patented formulation, this peat-free compost caters for the needs of fruit and veg plants and will feed for 3 months. This unique compost provides the optimum structure for roots to grow strong and controls water availability according to their needs.

How to use

Use as special compost for containers: Cut the top of your Miracle-Gro Peat Free Premium Fruit & Vegetable Compost and use as a special compost for your fruit and vegetables in containers. Place a layer of compost in the base of the pot. Tap out the plant from the old pot, loosen the root ball and place in the centre of the pot. Fill the space around the root ball, ensuring the compost level covers all the roots. Firm lightly, water thoroughly and let drain.

Use as a regular planter: Cut three panels from the back of your Miracle-Gro Peat Free Premium Fruit & Vegetable Compost and use as a planter for tomatoes, strawberries and courgettes, etc. Place in a sunny frost-free position. Shake bag to distribute contents evenly. Cut out three panels on the back of the planter where shown.

Use as an extra deep planter: Cut down the side of your Miracle-Gro Peat Free Premium Fruit & Vegetable Compost and use as a deep planter for root vegetables such as potatoes and carrots. Place in a sunny frost-free position. Shake bag to distribute contents evenly. Cut along the side of the bag, following the indicated lines. Plant potatoes in the bottom of the bag or plant seedlings. Water thoroughly after planting.
