Soil Conditioner FAQs

What is soil conditioner used for?

Soil conditioners can help improve soil structure by increasing aeration, water retention, and nutrients which all contribute to helping microorganisms thrive and for plant roots to grow.

What is the difference between soil conditioner and compost?

The difference between soil conditioner and compost is in the structure. You can grow plants and vegetables in compost but a good soil conditioner has to open a structure and roots would struggle to grasp it if it was the only substance to the bedding.

How long does it take for soil conditioner to work?

It can depend on what time of the year you apply soil conditioner, but you can expect to see a difference within a couple of weeks.

When should I add soil conditioner?

Add your solid conditioner before planting time by mixing it well into the soil to improve the soil structure within the rootzone. This ensures that essential nutrients are available to the plants as they grow, setting a strong foundation for healthy and robust plant development.

Do I need to water the soil after applying a soil conditioner?

Yes, water the soil after applying a soil conditioner. Once the soil conditioner is incorporated into the topsoil, watering it thoroughly is essential. This activates the soil conditioner and guarantees its even distribution within the soil.

As a result, the soil structure is enhanced, creating an optimal environment for robust plant growth. Learn how to effectively use soil conditioner here.

Can I mix a soil conditioner with other soil amendments?

Yes, mixing a soil conditioner with other soil amendments offers advantages for soil enrichment. However, striking a balance is crucial, as excessive quantities of soil conditioner can harm plant health.

An effective approach to blending soil amendments involves combining one part composted manure, three parts garden compost, and one part soil conditioner. This mixture can be thoroughly incorporated into the soil through tilling before the planting process begins.

Is a soil conditioner safe for plants, pets, and the environment?

Yes, soil conditioner is safe for plants, pets and the environment when used as directed. Soil conditioners are designed to improve soil quality and enhance plant growth without posing significant risks to plants or animals. However, we recommend carefully following our instructions for usage and taking appropriate precautions during application.

Can I use a soil conditioner in any type of soil?

A solid conditioner can be used for any type of soil and offers numerous benefits to both clay and compact soils by enhancing aeration and drainage, while also aiding moisture retention in light and sandy soils. 

The versatility of our soil conditioners allows them to address issues of poor soil structure and maintain overall soil quality, making them suitable for a wide range of soil compositions and conditions.

Smooth execution of the transaction and delivery. Very helpful phone call and conversation. Ordered three bags of Border Blend topsoil. Paid by Paypal. They delivered, on the specified date, carefully, exactly where I wanted the bags placed. All in all, a very pleasing purchase. The topsoil was excellent and had been very carefully prepared. No lumps. Would definitely recommend and I will use again. Everyone I spoke to was nice and helpful.

Ordered topsoil on Tuesday came by Friday at the exact time quoted. Was WAY cheaper than anywhere else (by about £15 per bag) and was dropped off via a crane on back of the lorry, not by pallet which most of the other places use. Soil was fine and dry. Brilliant !
