Product Information
At Westland we are always striving to make our products clearer and easier to understand so you can make more informed purchase decisions. This compost contains a medium level of peat for a better, more consistent growing medium with improved moisture and nutrient retention. It offers the ideal balance between air and water holding, making it the perfect environment for healthy root growth.
The Nutrient Guide gives an indication of the level of nutrients in compost. West+ Multi-Purpose Compost sits in the 7-8 range providing a medium-high level of balanced nutrients sufficient to feed plants for up to 4 months after planting.
pH is a measure of the acidity of the compost. A pH that is too low or too high will result in reduced nutrient uptake. This compost has the optimum pH to ensure that the correct amount of nutrients are freely available for plant uptake.

Prepare & Use

How do I use it?
First, put on a pair of gloves and rework compost between your hands, so it regains its intended texture. Then you're all set.

Seedlings / Pricking Out
- Prick out seedlings once they're large enough to handle.
- Hold seedling by the leaves to avoid damage and tease out root using a dibber or pencil.
- Plant seedlings apart to allow for growth.
- Water regularly until the seeds are ready to be potted on.

Potting
- Water plant well and allow to drain before potting.
- Allow enough space to accommodate roots.
- Remove from pot and plant in container, firming the compost gently around the roots.
- Once fully planted water well.

Taking Cuttings
- Fill seed tray evenly with compost, then firm gently and water.
- Make sloping cut in stem of cutting and remove all bottom leaves. Dip end of cutting in hormone rooting powder to encourage rooting.
- Make a hole in the compost with a pencil/dibber.
- Place cutting into hole and firm compost gently around it.
- Cover tray with glass/polythene to prevent drying out and place in a warm spot away from direct sunlight, until cuttings have taken.

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

Planting Out
- Dig a hole twice the size of root ball diameter and add a layer of compost.
- Place plant in hole and back fill with compost.
- Firm compost around plant and water well

infested with gnats - absolutely vile!!

I bought the 25litre version of this. I potted indoor plants & a few days later flies hatched. Lots & lots of flies. There was no salvaging the plants - I didn't want any possible transfer of fly eggs to new pots so binned everything. It was absolutely disgusting & quite costly as the plants potted were not cheap. They had also been reared from seed to established sized plants so I was doubly miffed. Avoid at all costs unless you want a swarm of flies...
