What is Jacks Magic Compost?

Jacks Magic All Purpose Compost is a specially formulated, peat-based compost enriched with organic fertiliser to feed your plants for the first 4-5 weeks of planting. Contains a seaweed extract that improves germination, improves root development and enhances flower, fruit and vegetable quality.

How do I use it?

Rework the compost between your hands, so it regains its intended structure. Then you're all set!

Some Tips from Jack:

Sowing Seeds:

  • Fill a seed tray with compost and firm gently.
  • Sow seeds to the depth and spacing mentioned on the seed packet. Many seeds have specific germination advice which should be followed.
  • Water compost after sowing seeds. Covering the seed tray with polythene or glass will help to stop the compost from drying out.
  • Keep trays in a warm area, away from direct sunlight until seeds germinate.
  • Once seeds have germinated, remove the polythene/glass and keep soil moist.

Seedlings/Pricking out:

  • Prick out seedlings once large enough to handle. Hold the seedling by the leaves to avoid damage and gently tease the roots from the compost using a dibber or pencil.
  • Space seedlings to allow for vigorous growth. Water regularly until the seedlings are ready to be potted on.

Potting:

  • Before potting, water plants well and allow to drain.
  • Choose new containers that are clean, have good drainage and enough space for root growth.
  • Put the plant in the new container and fill the space with new compost.
  • Water well and allow to drain.

Take Cuttings:

  • Fill a pot or tray with compost and firm gently.
  • Prepare the cutting according to the specific needs of the plant.
  • Generally, removing the bottom leaves and creating a sloping cut in the stem close to the joint will make a good cutting.
  • Make a hole in the compost with a dibber or pencil, place the cutting in the hole and firm the compost around it.
  • Place in a warm spot away from direct sunlight.

Container & Hanging Baskets:

  • Line the basket and fill with compost. Plant with trailing plants around the outside the upright plants in the middle.
  • Water well.

Jack's tips:

  • Re-seal the bag after you've used it.
  • Store in a dry, frost-free place away from weedkillers and other chemicals.
  • Not suitable for ericaceous (lime-hating) plants.
  • Wear gloves before handling.
