The basic ingredients of KRONEN® PEAT FREE universal soil are: ECOFIBREX® wood fibres and coconut chips - these elements are important for the structure and drainage, as well as compost, which is a storage for nutrients and plays a structural and filling role. Due to its content and high activity of soil microorganisms, compost is a constant source of humus in the substrate, easily available to plants during the growing season. This substrate is enriched with volcanic clay which has buffering and storage properties. It contains a small starter dose of mineral fertilizer that helps acclimatize plants in the new substratum.
KRONEN® Peat Free Universal Soil is designed for planting and replanting a wide range of plants (except acid-loving plants) in gardens, on terraces and balconies. Plants grow perfectly in it, and vegetables grow a fine crop.
Available in packages: 40L
A balanced composition of ECOFIBREX® wood fibres, vegetable compost (no household waste), fine fraction of conifer bark and coconut chips. It creates optimal conditions for the growth of the root ball and is a natural, organic source of nutrition for plants.
ECOFIBREX® wood fibre is a natural, organic, ecological raw material from fast-renewable sources produced for horticultural purposes at Lasland sp. z o.o. It is an impurity-free, homogeneous material with high air capacity (45-65%) that improves drainage and enhances water distribution in the substrate. Plant-culture friendly material, improves soil structure, optimizes substrate properties, prevents weed growth, is slug and snail unfriendly, prevents soil from drying out and freezing. It does not contain tannins, it is suitable for use in BIO crops.
Humus naturally increases the fertility of the soil. To enrich the humus the substrate contains certified compost of purely vegetable origin. Humus is a natural source and storage of nutrients readily available to plants. It stores water and mineral salts. Thanks to its structure, it improves water and air conditions and protects nutrients against washing out. It increases the biological activity of the substrate.
In the substrates components are used in quantities and fractions according to vegetative requirements of particular plant groups.
Planting in containers:
The bottom of the container used for planting/transplanting should have holes for removing excess water. Fill the container with soil 3-4 cm below the edge, slightly compress it. Make a hole in the center a little larger than the root ball of the plant to be transplanted. Place the plant at the depth at which it previously grew. Fill in the substrate, pressing lightly so that the roots are in contact with the substrate. Water it and be careful not to let the water overflow the edge of the container. At the beginning water it more often so that the nutrients contained in the substrate are supplied to the plant as needed.
Planting in the garden:
In the garden, bedding plants should be planted in the soil enriched with KRONEN® PEAT FREE universal soil. In order to do that, you should spread about 5 cm of KRONEN® PEAT FREE universal soil on the area planned for planting, and mix it lightly with the ground soil. In such a prepared soil, plants will have good conditions for root mass growth and nutrient storage. When planting shrubs and larger plants, mix the soil from the excavation with KRONEN® PEAT FREE universal soil, and place the plants in the soil prepared in this way.
CAUTION: substrates containing wood fibres and compost should be very carefully fluffed up before use, as during production and transport they become more compacted.
