Peat – “Summer Flower Soil” of Matogard OÜ contains nutritious compost that is biotechnologically manufactured from horse manure. It guarantees a suitable microbiological environment for the plants. The humins contained in the compost assure a faster development of a stronger rootage and help the plants to assimilate nutrients. It relieves the growth stress of plants that is conditioned from unfavourable growing conditions.
Controlled release fertilizers – a slowly, gradually dissoluble additional fertilizer Osmocote, i.e.. Assures that the plants are provided with nutrients throughout the whole 5-month growing period. The usage of Osmocote fertilizer and compost avoids the nutrients being washed out from the soil.
Wetting agent – assures the rapid absorption and even distribution of water in substrate. Guarantees facilitated water absorbency even after the soil has dried.
Perlite and clay – these ingredients bind water and stop the soil from drying
Use vessels with sufficient size. The amount of soil should be 1.5–2 l per plant. For vigorous summer flowers use 3 l of soil per plant. In order to drain excess water, put a 2–5 cm drainage layer (light gravel) to the bottom of the vessel. Then apply a layer of soil. After planting and compressing the soil, leave 2 cm of free space to the edge of the vessel to facilitate watering.
In order to achieve plentiful blossoms, provide sufficient amount of water for the plant in a warm summer. Matogard Summer Flower Soil includes fertilizers for the whole growing period. If necessary, provide fertilizers for growing period.
