Organic Potting Mix


Our Organic Potting Mix lets you grow potted plants the all-natural way AND get amazing results. In fact, it works so well that there's a chance you'll get carried away planting and run out of pots.

If this happens, don't be scared to think outside the pot - any "container" will do. Start off slow with an old boot or a watering can, and then let your creativity take over. Hmmm, I bet no one would miss that bathtub.


This product contains no weeds. None whatsoever. Nada. Zip. Zero. Zilch.


Certified 100% Organic by BioGro, New Zealand's leading organic certification agency. No chemicals here, my friend.


    We start with our Living Earth Organic Compost - the magic, nutrient-rich ingredient in all our mixes. Then we sprinkle in some Bark Fines to give it a bit of body. Pumice (aiding drainage) is added next. And last, but not least we throw in some Organic Fertilisers for all-natural growing performance.


    Before we bag it up and send it to your favourite garden store, we make sure our Organic Potting Mix is top-notch by testing it for:

    • Nutrients
    • Seed Germination
    • Weed Free
    • Plant Growth

    We take great care to bring you our finest products. Our products are created from green waste, so you might sometimes find small pieces of non-organic material in them.
