Soil and fertilisers

The soil beneath your feet is your most precious resource in the garden: look after it, and your plants thrive. There's a huge range of bagged composts, soil improvers and fertilisers in our garden centre to keep container plants happy and your soil in tip-top health.

Multipurpose compost is perfect for container-grown bedding, cuttings and potting on. In our garden centre you'll find environmentally-friendly peat-free and peat-reduced composts, and composts with added fertiliser and water-retaining gels - great for thirsty hanging baskets.

Specialist composts are tailor-made for the needs of plants from citrus to roses. You'll also find soil-based composts in our garden centre for permanent container planting, ericaceous composts for lime-hating plants and fine-grade seed composts for sowing.

Soil improvers like farmyard manure and soil conditioner beef up poorer soils to keep plants growing strongly. Mix with your soil when planting and use to mulch the surface to suppress weeds and hold in moisture.

Fertilisers include liquid feeds such as liquid seaweed and tomato feed to encourage flowering and fruiting. Add slow-release fertilisers such as fish, blood & bone to planting holes and mix granular feeds into potting composts for feed-and-go convenience.

Please ask the staff in our garden centre in Templeogue for more information and advice about composts and fertilisers.
