Field No.16 Peat Free Tree and Shrub Planting Compost

Field No1 Soil Conditioner

Field No.16 Tree and Shrub planting compost is specifically designed to give trees, shrubs and perennials the perfect head start when planting out into areas where the existing soil/substrate is lacking in organic matter and the nutrients required for healthy plant growth. This product is typically used by commercial landscaping contractors on larger planting schemes where the top soil is already in-situ and of a sub-optimal quality. Field No.16 is particularly beneficial when commercial constraints mean planting needs to take place outside of the ideal planting season of October to April.

How do you use it?
1. Simply dig the planting pit two to three times the size of the root ball/pot as normal and then blend the Field N. 16 at a ratio of 50:50 with the excavated soil.
2. Remove the plant from its pot and gently tease out the roots.
3. Loosen the base of the pit with a fork and then fill the planting pit with the mixture so that the plant sits slightly proud of the surrounding soil. If planting large trees or shrubs it is advisable to attach a stake or root ball anchor system at this stage.
4. Fill the area around the plant with the remaining mixture, firming it in as you go so as to eliminate air pockets.
5. Water in according to the weather conditions.
6. Once planted it is a good idea to apply a mulch such as the Field 8 contract ornamental around the plant to a depth of 75-100mm. This will help hold moisture in soil, suppress the growth of weeds and provide an aesthetically pleasing finish to the planted area.

What does it do?
  • It contains balanced levels of major nutrients and trace elements that will be slowly released to meet the plants requirements.
  • A stable blend of organic substrates that maintain critical physico-chemical properties such as pH and electrical conductivity so as to hold nutrients in the root zone whilst reducing leaching.
  • The introduction of stable organic matter will stimulate macro fauna such as worms that will naturally encourage the expansion of the root zone beyond the planting pit.
  • The additional organic matter will also encourage beneficial micro-organisms that will help to inhibit plant diseases.
  • The Field No. 16 will both encourage drainage whilst holding some moisture in the root zone reducing the requirement for irrigation during hot, dry summer weather conditions.
  • This product contains naturally high levels of potash that will assist herbaceous species in resisting cold and frost during the winter.
  • Makes soil easier to dig
  • Reduces the need for watering in drier months
