Use Bonsai Biochar to improve your growing media. Horticultural charcoal has many benefits for plants of all types. Improves moisture retention whilst allowing good drainage. Also retains significant nutrient from fertilisers and promotes beneficial fungal and microbial activity which improves growth, health and pest resistance. Lightweight, frost proof and will not decay or break down.
Produced from 100% FSC standard, managed British hardwood coppice, arboricultural arisings and post consumer waste wood to UK-BBF, EU and IBC Quality mandates in modern retort low emission kilns.
100% sustainable British carbon capture product locks carbon into soil for hundreds of years.
Green Dream Bonsai Biochar 2-8mm grade contains very little dust to maintain superior drainage.
Green Dream Bonsai Biochar 0-8mm is for use in finer grade soils where more moisture retention is needed.
Obviously because of the nature of the product some dust is produced in handling and shipping but in comparison with most products available our horticultural charcoal has very little fine material, generally less than 1% by volume and can be used straight from the bag.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

This product is ‘straight’ it has not been charged with any nutrient. Biological activity will develop over several weeks once in use.
 
Best results will be seen when used alongside a biological inoculant like Green Dream Soil Source or Root Grow.
Typical pH is 9.5 +/- 0.5. Used as directed overall soil pH will not be altered significantly.
