John Innes Compost

We offer John Innes. Seed, John Innes No.1 and John Innes. No. 3 composts.

The higher numbers are suitable for more mature plants and are especially suited to larger plants permanently growing in large pots. We would recommend adding 50% of our own Cleeve Nursery Multipurpose compost to any large permanently planted pots as this improves root growth.

Many plants have evolved in soils with low pH and these are known as ‘lime hating’ plants. These acid soil loving plants must have this lime free compost to thrive. In most cases they are most at home in peaty soils as this is the type of soil in which they have evolved over thousands of years.
