HOW AND WHEN TO USEUse good quality moss or sedge peat and moisten before use.Use a two gallon size bucket. Measure out six buckets of peat and two buckets of sharp sand (or grit or perlite). To mix smaller quantities use pro-rata amounts.For peat-only compost, use just 8 buckets (16 gallons) of peat. Add the contents of the pack and mix thoroughly.Leave for one or two days before use.Best results with all composts are achieved when freshly made, therefore mix as required.MAKES Sufficient Compost for at least:-20 seed trays or 175 x 30.5" potsor 60 x 5" pots or 30 x 7" potsor 18 x 8" pots or 13 x 9" potsor 9 x 10" pots or 2 x growing bagsSTORAGE OF MIXED COMPOSTMixed compost is best used quickly but can be stored for up to six weeks if kept cool and dry.PROFESSIONAL TIPSUse Chempak potting compost for re-potting and potting on established plants only.Also useful for overwintering tubers.
