John Innes composts were developed over 50 years ago and are based on a traditional recipe of loam, peat and horticultural grit with added nutrients. John Innes Seed Sowing Compost, which is a naturally reduced peat mix, is specifically designed to establish young seedlings and plants. It provides the optimum environment for seed germination and growth into healthy seedlings.
Westland John Innes Seed Sowing Compost is the best choice for sowing seed and seedlings as it provides a balanced nutrient supply for seedlings. It is easy to water and re-wet. The high loam content acts as a buffer for nutrients.
Vermiculite is a naturally occurring mineral material that has been heated to produce lightweight, absorbent flakes perfect for a range of gardening tasks. Added to John Innes Seed Sowing compost it helps retain moisture and buffer nutrients. Vermiculite also helps insulate seeds against temperature fluctuations and humidity changes.
