Wool throughout the season
When preparing your soil for new plantings, wool pellets are your go-to solution.
- Dig the pellets deep into the soil to improve its structure and store nutrients for deep-rooted vegetables such as parsnips, beetroots, carrots, and turnips.
- Alternatively, dig the pellets more shallow in the soil to retain moisture and give readily available nutrition for fast growing plants like lettuce, spinach and radish.
Use wool pellets as a mulch around the base of your plants. This will suppress weeds, retain moisture and regulate soil temperatures. Keeping your plants safe from droughts, temperature fluctuations and weeds.
Spread pellets over beds and dig into the soil. Applying more liberally where nutrient hungry plants have been such as courgette, pumpkin and squash. This will replace the nutrients taken and give back to your soil naturally.
Sprinkle layers of wool pellets into your compost bin and let the worms do the rest. This will give you a nutrient rich compost ready for your spring planting and keep your earthworms very happy.
