HOW TO USE COMPOST

Compost is usually mistaken with soil sometimes and people end up using a large amount of it for their plants. But compost is a natural fertilizer which means a large amount of it can kill off the plants. Compost is supposed to be used in a certain ratio depending on what it is being used for. So, we decided to ask our in-house composting expert to recommend the ratio for compost in different uses. Here’s what we have compiled:

FOR USE IN A LAWN

  • 10 square foot requires 5 kg of compost.

FOR PLANTING SEEDS

  • Compost to Soil ratio – 1:3

FOR PLANTING SEEDLINGS

  • Compost to Soil ratio – 1:2

TO NOURISH OLD PLANTS

  • For already potted plants (flowers, herbs, vegetables), just sprinkle a handful of compost on the top soil.

A small amount of compost can do wonders for your plants!
