What is Soil Enricher?
Firstly, a soil enricher/conditioner is a product which is added to soil to improve its physical qualities, using its ability to provide nutrition for plants. Soil enrichers can be used to improve poor soils. They can make poor soils more usable and can be used to maintain soils in peak condition.
Say hello to Bloomin Amazing Soil Enricher!
Bloomin Amazing™ is a no-dig soil enricher, easy feed and mulch all in one. Produced in the West Country with an effective carbon footprint, it is lightweight, clean and almost odourless – even though it has so many of the properties of real manure, so it's ideal for the garden. It's entirely pet and family-friendly, and very high in organic matter, making it a perfect soil enricher and very effective weed suppressant.
This dig free soil enricher is produced at their renewable energy plant near Poundbury in the beautiful Dorset countryside, run by local farmers and the Duchy of Cornwall.
So you can be sure that, just as Bloomin Amazing's unique triple action gives your garden the best care and attention possible, you are also protecting the wider ecosystem in which every garden thrives and belongs. Their commitment to sustainability also means that every bag of Bloomin Amazing soil enricher is guaranteed 100% peat-free.
Bloomin Amazing comes from an environmentally sustainable source, and it makes use of a by-product from the production of energy. As you might expect, they've aimed to make sure that the rest of their supply chain is equally sustainable.
I had a brief catch up with Nick Finding from Bloomin Amazing, who also told me:
"We've also had a lot of feedback which tells us that it's great for moisture retention, we have allotmenteers and polytunnel growers telling us that they mix it in 50/50 with the soil in their veg plots (it can be dug in too) and it's been really good for that over these last 2 dry summers. They also say it definitely deters slugs - it's the roughness of the material we think - so that's a useful bonus of course…."
How to use Bloomin Amazing
You want a vibrant, colourful and healthy garden with the minimum of fuss and bother. Bloomin Amazing can be used all year round, that’s why it’s great as a 3 in 1 answer to a lot of the gardener’s needs.
The dig free soil enricher helps you achieve results in these 3 ways:
- Forms a protective mulch to keep weeds down
- High in organic matter to enrich your soil
- Feeds plants with essential NPK and micronutrients
First make sure the area is free of perennial weeds, especially any deep-rooted types.
Spread the love
We recommend you wear gardening gloves and spread a generous 3cm layer of Bloomin Amazing on the surface of the soil and right up to the stems of any existing plants or shrubs. That’s it! Now just wait for your plants to soak up the goodness.
Let nature do its thing…
Bloomin Amazing will gradually be worked into the soil by worms where it will slowly break down, releasing its goodness into the soil. For best results, expect to re-apply every year to keep the weeds away and the soil replenished.
We think Bloomin Amazing soil enricher is perfect for home and allotments. Personally, I love adding a thick layer of mulch twice a year to suppress weeds and improve my soil structure. I also think mulching with a product like this makes the borders have a professional look that only comes with added knowledge and effort. You’ll really look like you know what you are doing if you add this to your border, and your plants will love you for it too!
