How to use this product
When you receive our veg soil, simply place in a pot and water: it contains enough feed to last a minimum of 6 weeks of vegetative growth. If needing to veg for longer than this, top dress with Grow at a rate of 2-4 ml/ litre of substrate (1 tbsp/ gallon) every 2 weeks.
In flower, we suggest it is top dressed with Bloom when switching to 12/12 (or the very first signs of flower if growing outside) & then use Bloom2 post-stretch as per the feeding schedule for photoperiod plants.
In terms of watering, you want to keep the substrate moist with minimal runoff. Watering 'little and often' is recommended. A pH in the range of 6 to 7 of dechlorinated/ rain water is ideal.
A cover crop is also a great way to protect the soil and offers numerous advantages for your plant. Have a look at our new ultimate cover crop mix.

This product should be kept in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight with temperatures between 5-20oC. It will remain active for 12 months. If storing for more than 1 week from date of receipt, we strongly suggest the contents are placed in a pot as the packaging will lose integrity over time.
Once a grow is finished, our soil can be reused - simply cut the old plant at the soil level and re-amend with a full dose of Grow, Wormcasts, Neem and Rockdust and some peat free ericaceous compost or coco if more organic matter is needed. Then water until 5% runoff and ensure there are no dry patches, leave for 10 days and you are good to go!
