For your plants in pots or window boxes
When repotting your potted plants with Tonusol’s compost, do not fill the container up completely. Leave 6 to 7 cm free (2.4 to 2.8 inches) up to the rim, and add a 3 to 4 cm layer (1.2 to 1.6 inch) of Tonusol’s Clay Pebbles. Make sure to leave 2 cm (0.8 inch) between the pebbles and the pot’s lip to avoid them flowing outside the pot when watering.
· SURFACE TREATMENT:
Remove 6 cm (2.4 inches) of soil or compost, place a 3 cm layer (1.2 inch) of Tonusol’s Clay Pebbles, and leave 2 cm (0.8 inch) between the pebbles and the pot’s lip to avoid their rolling out.
The container must have drainage holes, otherwise drill some with an awl.
Place a 3 cm drainage layer of clay pebbles at the bottom of the container.
· AERATION OF YOUR COMPOST:
By mixing the clay pebbles with your compost, you will ensure the aeration of the milieu around the roots, which in turn will allow their development, and you will also provide them with an additional water-storage capacity in case of draught.
- Mix Tonusol’s Clay Pebbles with your compost at a rate of 10% of its volume.
- Place also a draining layer of clay pebbles at the bottom of the container.
The beautiful orange color and the perfect calibration of Tonusol’s Clay Pebbles will provide a nice ornament to the surface of your pots and window boxes as well as prevent weeds from growing.
