Why Use Potting Mix?
They offer plenty of advantages over the dirt in your backyard. But if you’re new to potting mixes, or you’re a bit of a natural sceptic, you might still be wondering – why use it? Here are some of the reasons we think that potting mix is a garden essential:
It’s full of organic nutrients. Just like other pre-mixed garden additives like compost, manure or mulch, all organic potting mixes are designed to encourage healthy garden growth. There are a variety of mixes available to suit different plants.
It improves soil structure. Both organic and inorganic potting mixes can contribute to better soil. Mixing certain materials through your soil can help with all sorts of structural issues, offering you better aeration, drainage and moisture retention.
It’s predictable. At the end of the day, the quality of the soil in our gardens can vary significantly from area to area – even from property to property. When you use a specially formulated potting mix instead, you will always know what to expect.
