Ornamental Plants, Trees and Flowers

From flowering annuals to container-grown tropical trees, compost materials have proven successful in growing a wide spectrum of nursery crops. Moreover, the introduction of compost products in field nurseries as soil amendments have shown an increased level of productivity in various tree species. Numerous published research studies and reviews have exhibited the extent to which compost products improve production of nursery crops.


Reasons To Use Composts Derived From Green Waste and Bio-Solids:
• Improves soil structure and porosity – creating a better plant root environment
• Increases moisture infiltration and permeability, and reduces bulk density of heavy soils – improving moisture infiltration rates and reducing erosion and runoff
• Improves the moisture holding capacity of light soils – reducing water loss and nutrient leaching, and improving moisture retention
• Improves the cation exchange capacity (CEC) of soils
• Supplies organic matter
• Aids the proliferation of soil microbes
• Supplies beneficial microorganisms to soils and growing media
• Encourages vigorous root growth
• Allows plants to more effectively utilize nutrients, while reducing nutrient loss by leaching
• Enables soils to retain nutrients longer
• Contains humus – assisting in soil aggregation and making nutrients more available for plant uptake
• Buffers soil pH
