What exactly is Multi-Purpose Compost? Can it really be used for all my plants?
J Arthur Bower’s Multi-Purpose Compost is a medium textured compost with added nutrients and lime, that is suitable for a wide variety of plants. The main exceptions are ericaceous plants such as rhododendrons, camellias, heathers and blueberries – these plants hate lime and will not thrive in limey conditions. Specialist plants such as cacti and succulents, carnivorous plants and alpines also appreciate special compost mixes. Our Multi-Purpose Compost can be used for sowing seeds, repotting houseplants and filling outdoor tubs and baskets. To prevent compaction in tubs and baskets, the compost does contain some coarse material – this can be sieved out when sowing fine seeds.
