Second Nature Compost

(Horticulture Application)

Our Compost is Rich in organic matter and excellent for amending depleted soils, enhancing the growth of turf, enriching soils, and ornamental plants.

Benefits and Advantages 

Second Nature Compost is minimum 30% in weight organic matter, full of rich nutrients such as Sulphur, Nitrogen, Potassium, Copper, Phosphate, and Zinc.

It is a pathogen-free product that will contain less than 40% moisture on average, and its slow release allows plants to use available nutrients.

Shrubs and Trees: Dig a hole 2/3 the depth of the root ball and 2 to 3 times the width. Mix 1 part Second Nature Compost with 3 parts soil obtained from the hole. Place shrub/tree into the hole and apply amended soil around the root ball. Firm the soil occasionally and water.
