Collection: Potting Composts
Organic composts are an important step towards making gardening more sustainable. This is why we make our potting composts from natural ingredients that are child and pet friendly. On top of that, our organic soils are peat-free and produce less CO2 during manufacturing. Our goal is to combine effectiveness and sustainability.

Frequently Asked Questions
Unlike many conventional potting soils, our Plantura composts are suitable for use in organic production. In addition, our composts bear the ECOCERT logo, which is recognised worldwide.In order for composts to carry the ECOCERT logo on their packaging, regular checks and inspections are carried out at our production factories. Thanks to the ECOCERT certification on the Plantura soil bags, environmentally-friendly consumers can be 100% sure that they are using a product suitable for use in organic production, which contains only the best ingredients. We use our animal-free garden fertilisers to enrich our potting composts. This means they are child and pet friendly.
Our peat-free composts produce about 60% less CO2 during production compared to conventional potting composts. Why 60%? Potting soils can be made of a variety of materials, each of which has a different CO2 balance. Black peat and other types of peat, for example, are among the materials with the worst CO2 balance. For this reason, our four soils do not contain any peat. With substitutes such as green compost, coir pith and wood fibres, our organic composts are in no way inferior to conventional potting soils. On top of that, they produce an average of 60% less CO2 in their life cycle - from manufacturing to disposal. This makes our composts environmentally-friendly and perfect for sustainable gardening.
No, our organic potting composts already contain fertiliser, so you do not have to fertilise for about 4 to 6 weeks. After that, we recommend using our animal-free fertilisers to feed your plants.
Unopened and opened bags should be stored in a cool and dry place, protected from direct sunlight. An unheated cellar or garden shed is perfect for storing the compost bags. Close opened bags carefully. Our potting soils are made from clean raw materials.Composts, especially organic ones, can sometimes attract fungus gnats (sciarid flies) - the tiniest gap is enough for them to get in. So, make sure to close the compost bags well.The nutrient contents declared on the packaging can change while in storage, as the nutrients of the fertiliser are broken down and released.
Compost bags are heavy, so buying them in stores can be hard work. In shops, the bags are often stored outside and are therefore wet and dirty. When you order our Plantura soils online, they will be delivered to your home, quickly and conveniently. And no need to worry about your carbon footprint either: we rely on carbon-neutral shipping. On top of that, our composts’ packaging is made of 80% recycled plastic - an environmentally-friendly material that has been awarded the Blue Angel (German ecolabel). We are asking our customers to recycle their empty soil bags after use.
As with all our products, we are committed to bringing you potting composts that are both effective and sustainable. If you buy our composts, you are supporting strong and healthy plants while choosing a sustainable alternative to conventional soils. But what makes our composts so sustainable? First of all, we produce entirely peat-free composts. On top of that, our compost bags are made of 80% recycled plastic, an environmentally-friendly alternative that has been awarded the Blue Angel (German ecolabel).
