Vitax Aquatic Compost 20Lt


Product Description

Vitax Aquatic Compost is the ideal planting medium for both deep water and marginal aquatic plants of all kinds. It is a carefully graded medium/heavy loam containing a special fertiliser that will provide plants with all the nourishment they need for strong healthy, early growth without affecting aquatic life or promoting algae.

Mid-spring through to early summer is the best time to plant aquatic plants. The water is warming up at this time of year, providing plants with the best chance of establishing well.

In smaller ponds, aquatic plants are best grown in containers and this approach also prevents them from becoming too large and invasive. Choose a container appropriate to the size of the plant. Unless the container has an extremely fine mesh, line with hessian or a polypropylene fabric to prevent the compost from being washed away.

  • Carefully graded medium/heavy loam
  • Includes a special Vitax fertiliser that will provide all the initial nourishment needed by plants
  • Safe to use – will not affect pond life or promote algae growth

For extra stability, especially when taller species are being planted, place larger stones or pebbles in the base of the container and part fill with Vitax Aquatic Compost.
