Product Description

A brand new innovation for gardeners, these new Basket Starter Discs are a great option for easy gardening. The first time ever an easy solution for using beneficial microbes has been available for hanging baskets or tubs - and combined with fertiliser and water retaining gel in one simple to use disc.

Created by the clever scientists that have pioneered Rootgrow, these discs are formed from compressed coir fibre, which binds in both beneficial biological microbes, and balanced slow release fertiliser -giving the perfect start to all hanging baskets, planters, tubs and windowboxes.

Inserted at planting, when watered each disc swells to 5 times it's size, and the beneficial microbes will start to grow, bringing the compost to life and adding all the benefits of the natrual good microbes in the soil to the confines of a basket or tub. At the same time, the fertilsier is slowly released over several months, to give the perfect start to your plants. In addition, the water retaining crystals help prevent the compost from drying out by binding water in, reducing the amount of time and effort watering in summer.

To use, half fill your basket or planter with compost, insert a disc and cover with a little more compost and plant as normal. Recommended doses are:

Single pot to 3 litres (c. 15cm or 6' diameter) - 1 disc
Small baskets and pots to 7 litres (22cm or 9') diameter - 2 discs
Medium baskets and pots to 15 litres (30cm or 12' diamater - 3 discs
Large baskets and planters > 15 litres (35cm or 14'+ diameter) - 4 discs
