Its unique formulation of 3 different patents will feed your plants for 6 months, provide the optimum structure for the roots to grow strong and control water availability according to their needs, as a result your plants will thrive.

Miracle-Gro Premium Moisture Control Compost for Pots & Baskets contains an exclusive Aquacoir® Formula. This unique combination of coir and wetting agent stores and releases water when pot plants need it the most, to take the guess work out of watering. It absorbs twice as much water as ordinary multi purpose compost, which in return helps stop plants drying out and makes watering easier.

Miracle-Gro Premium Moisture Control Compost for Pots & Baskets contains a unique, patented Fibre Smart™ technology. The hollow wood fibres ensure optimum balance of air and water for strong roots to grow healthy plants. Wood fibres are 100% natural and peat free.

With a unique combination of 14 vital minerals. N/P/K, Nitrogen is used by plants for lots of leaf growth and good green colour. Phosphorous is used by plants to help form new roots, make seeds, fruits, flowers and fight disease. Potassium helps plants make strong stems and keep growing fast. Additionally, there are 11 more minerals such as iron, iodine, fluoride, copper, zinc, chromium, selenium, manganese and molybdenum which are vital for maintaining plants health.

How to use:

  • For hanging baskets: Line the basket, if required with moss or other liner. Part fill basket with compost. Plant trailing plants around the baskets edge and upright plants in the centre. Fill the rest of the basket with compost, firm lightly and water thoroughly.
  • For containers and pots: Place a layer of compost in the base of the pot. Tap out the plant from the old pot, loosen the root ball and place in the centre of the pot. Fill the space around the root ball, ensuring the compost level covers all the roots. Firm lightly, water thoroughly and let drain.
