Biochar Tree Soil Improver
Carbon Gold Biochar Tree Soil Improver is ideal whether you are transplanting new trees or woody plants or if you need to revitalise established ones; it promotes root development and reduces nutrient leaching all of which helps defend against transplant shock and drought stress.
Although we call it Tree Soil Improver, it is actually a perfect and powerful treatment not only for all types of tree but also for shrubs, roses, bare root stock and hedging. It is FSC certified and Soil Association Approved for organic growing although is commonly used by conventional as well as organic growers.
Biochar Tree Soil Improver is a compost or soil additive so when planting a new tree (or shrub etc) all you have to do is apply at a rate of one part biochar tree soil improver to nine parts compost/soil. If you are planting in a pot, then 1 litre of biochar tree soil improver will treat a 10-litre pot. Likewise, if you are using around an existing tree, then simply incorporate into the soil around the base of the plant.
By using Carbon Gold biochar, you can bring a physical and permanent change to your soil. It improves structure, aeration, water-holding capacity (so less watering), 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.
