Green Dream Bonsai Biochar - Graded Horticultural Charcoal

BONSAI BIOCHAR. Graded Straight Horticultural Charcoal (2-8mm)
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. Light weight, frost proof and will not decay or break down.
Produced from 100% FSC standard, managed British hardwood coppice and arboricultural arisings 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.
Most biochars contain a huge amount of finnes or dust. For bonsai this is not desirable as it will wash into the bottom of the pot where it will seriously impede drainage. Green Dream Bonsai Biochar is graded 2-8mm and contains very little dust. Obviously because of the nature of the product 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:
Mix into any growing media product at a rate of 1 to 10% by volume (not weight). Higher concentrations are possible with some plants but no additional benefit will be experienced. 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.
