Biochar Soil Improver
Biochar Soil Improver promotes root development and soil structure and so is ideal if you want resilient and productive veg, fruit, flowers, roses, shrubs, trees, or plants. It is FSC certified and Soil Association Approved for organic growing although is commonly used by conventional as well as organic growers.
You can use it as either a compost or soil additive, or as a planting aid. By adding it to your compost or directly into the planting hole in the soil, you are introducing the long-term benefits of biochar, as well as giving the compost or soil a boost in terms of the biology that helps ensure strong and productive plants.
It is easy to use, we usually advise that if you are propagating and potting on then you add Biochar Soil Improver at a rate of 10% volume: that is one part biochar soil improver to nine parts compost/soil (that’s 45grams per litre, if you want to get your scales out!). This is equivalent to a small handful. Equally you can just add a trowel scoop or two to the planting hole if you are using it as a one-off application.
By using Carbon Gold biochar, you can bring a physical and permanent change to your soil. It improves structure, aeration, water-holding capacity, and nutrient retention, and provides a refuge for beneficial microbiology which we add to improve plant health.
Biochar locks carbon into the ground and so reduces CO2 being released into the atmosphere where it is so harmful, so in using biochar products you are not only gaining superb results with your growing, but you are also reducing your carbon footprint at the same time.
