Frequently asked questions
For sowing and starting plants, we recommend using our Plantura Organic Herb & Seedling Compost, which contains fewer nutrients. When the plants are bigger and stronger, you can plant them into a more nutrient-rich compost, such as our organic vegetable compost. This is the perfect combination for an abundant and aromatic harvest.
Our organic tomato soil has a pH of 6.0 to 7.5 and is therefore perfect for vegetables and soft fruits. For blueberries and other ericaceous plants, however, you should choose a more acidic compost.
Our Organic Tomato & Vegetable Compost is peat-free. This means that your plants need to be watered slightly more often, but with less water. Water your plants whenever the top layer of soil feels dry.
Mould can occur more frequently on organic potting composts. However, this has nothing to do with the quality of the compost. This type of mould is also not a health hazard. In fact, mould spores are everywhere in the air. With the right conditions (warmth and humidity), mould can be found on any organic growing substrate. Temperature fluctuations during transportation/storage can cause condensation in the soil bag, which promotes the germination of the mould spores.
What can you do if you find mould on your compost? Put the bag in a drier and better ventilated place to prevent the mould from spreading further. If the mould is on the soil of a potted plant, remove the top layer (2 to 3cm) and dispose of it in your garden waste bin or compost heap.
The small flies are probably fungus gnats (sciarid flies) which like to lay their eggs in peat-free potting composts with a high content of organic matter. So, a fungus gnat infestation is not a sign of bad soil. Organic, peat-free composts are, of course, more sustainable and better for the environment than conventional composts containing peat. Because of our high quality standards, we can rule out that fungus gnat infestations occur during the production stage and storage of our organic composts. Fungus gnats can, however, appear during transportation or in your home. If you notice a fungus gnat infestation, water your plants less and apply a thin layer of sand to the top of the soil.
Because our organic compost for vegetables is entirely peat-free, it saves up to 60% CO2 during production (in comparison to conventional potting composts).
