Our hand-crafted compost comes in a resealable bag, meaning that you can always use it later if you have too much. It'll also stay fresh for at least twelve months once opened, so never worry about it going off shortly after purchase. We formulate the soil ourselves and keep it in quarantine for 14 days to ensure there are no soil-borne pests like Fungus Gnats.
NB: If you have chosen Coir, we will provide this pot material when we have the chosen size in stock; however, due to demand we may have to revert back to the plastic alternative. We will contact you should this happen though. 😊
People often get confused with choosing the next suitable pot for their plant. As a general rule of thumb, houseplants like to be transplanted into the next sized pot that measures a few centimetres wider than the original.
To correctly select the next sized pot for your plant, simply measure the original pot's diameter at the top. The table below shows more about which size to choose next, base on your current pot's diameter.

For the last five years, we have been formulating composts for our houseplants, balancing the critical ingredients for different groups (Bonsai, Bulbs, Cacti, Tropicals, etc.), with varying ratios of compost, perlite, grit & sand. We believe that a well-structured soil is critical for maximising both the root and foliar growth performance. We source the compost from well-respected companies in Southern England, which has tight restrictions over quality control & peat-free regulations.
Your compost will come in a resealable bag, so don't worry about having extras! The soil will stay fresh for at least twelve months when stored in a cool place with the bag's top securely fastened.

The exact amount of drops isn't a priority, but be sure always to keep your plants well-fed to optimise their overall health. (NPK - 10.6 - 4.4 - 1.7).
To find out more about how frequently you should feed your plant, search for the specific-plant article via the Menu's 'Search' function. Generally, houseplants are best fed every four waters in the spring and summer & every six in the colder months for their dormancy.
We'll only use pots that are top quality, recyclable and promote good drainage in the soil.
Depending on the pot size chosen above, our matching saucer is also recyclable and of good quality. You can even double this up as a 'Pebble Tray' to increase the humidity levels around your plant.
