As spring is here, now it is an ideal time to make sure your garden is in good shape. This is especially true if you are looking to grow fruit and vegetables, re-invigorate your flowerbeds with new plants or help your new bulbs and seeds get the best start in life.
Recently, we had to dig up many dead lavender plants that perhaps should have been dug up last year. While we decide on what plants to replace them with, we are going to give the flowerbed some new compost to ensure the new plants have a good heathy start.
Adding compost to your garden can give it that extra boost to ensure plants stay heathy and strong, but trying to figure out which is best can be confusing. Ecoscape have designed this simple guide to composting infographic which breaks down what different types of compost there are, what is used to make each different type and what compost should be used for and when. This is a very easy to follow guide.
I am not an expert at gardening. In fact, I think I kill more plants and trees than anyone I know! I have never been naturally green fingered. So I always rely on garden expert advice to give me a helping hand to look after my garden. Before reviewing this guide, I didn’t realised that there are four types of different composts available in local garden centres. Normally I just buy the cheapest soil from the supermarket to use and never gave it a second thought if it would be useful for my flowerbed. With this guide, I now understand that I need to get potting or multipurpose composts if I want a healthy plant.
I hope infographic helps you to choose the right composts too.
