Improve Your Compost & Grow More
Perlite volcanic rock granules are added to seed and potting compost to improve aeration, moisture retention and drainage. Perlite stimulates healthy root growth, helps increase nutrient absorbtion and water retention. Perlite is especially useful for outdoor potting mixes as prolonged wet weather can result in a soaked airless compost where plants struggle to survive.
Plants grown in containers tend to be over rather than under watered so creating an open, aerated potting mix is essential. Adding perlite and aerating your compost promotes good root growth and reduces the risk of root disease.
We recommend watering the perlite granules before use to reduce the amount of dust when mixing with your compost. For mixing with potting compost use approx 25% perlite by volume.
