Our Indoor Herb Compost is handcrafted here in the UK and 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.

Don't know the size of your new pot yet? Simply measure the pot's top diameter to find the perfect amount of compost you'll need for repotting.
|Size (Litres)||Ideal for...|
|1L||13cm pots or smaller. Perfect for sowing seeds, too!|

|10L||24.5cm - 30.5cm pots, or larger containers like troughs/planters|
Checklist for a Successful Repotting:
- Ensure the new pot has drainage holes in its bottom. No matter how good a compost is, you're always running the risk of root rot if water begins to accumulate in the pot's base.
- Respect the roots. 'Transplant Shock' is a common issue among heavy-handed transplants, so always be delicate and try not to over-touch the roots or pull soil from them. You can always book a 1-1 Video Call with Joe Bagley if you're worried about transplantation.
- Fill the new pot a fifth-deep with the new potting mix. Sit the plant on top of the mix and fill the gap between the pot and roots. Instead of patting down the compost for support, simply give the plant a thorough soak with water to consolidate its new soil. Wait until the drainage holes finish dripping water before placing it in your decorative pot. Job well done!
- Fill a 7cm plastic pot with your Indoor Herb compost and water it thoroughly. It's best to do this outside to avoid spilling compost-water everywhere!
- Re-spread the compost to flatten it out and spread the seeds across, making sure they have at least a 4mm gap between them.
- Sprinkle the vermiculite that we've sent over the soil to lock-in the moisture and place the pot(s) on a north or east-facing windowsill away from radiators. Keep the soil continuously moist and wait for new growth to emerge!
