1 lb pouch of CHAR+ BioChar Soil Amendment

Created from natural raw wood sources, a multipurpose product for amending all potting soil mixes, or added directly to native (garden) soils. BioChar can also be added to compost, peat, or other soil supplements rich in nutrients, to further create and personalize growing blends.

What is BioChar? Biochar is a name for charcoal.

Nature's Wonder Product. A soil supplement, it enhances and remediates the soil helping plants grow to full potential.

BioChar Benefits - Improves the soil's water and nutrient retention, improves PH level (use less lime), increases soil porosity and pliability, plus it enhances overall plant vigour and growth. Use of BioChar as a soil amendment will encourage the reduction and unnecessary overuse of fertilizers by its inherent natural porous structure.

Using Pure CHAR+ BioChar

"A Little Goes a Long Way"

Use as a soil amendment 1 part BioChar with 10 to 20 parts Soil Media.

Because CHAR+ BioChar holds onto nutrients in the soil, it is best to add CHAR+ BioChar "fully charged" by inoculating it, so that it is adding to the total nutrient proportion of your soil. The easiest way to inoculate is to blend CHAR+ BioChar with compost in a 50/50 ratio, then let it "age" for at least two weeks. This “primes” the CHAR+ BioChar preloading it with freshly released nutrients and microbes.

The aging period allows time for the microbes to physically inhabit the CHAR+ BioChar. During this time, the CHAR+ BioChar color may change from black to grey. Spread 1/2" – 1" of this mixture over your soil and till or mix it in 5” deep. If you’re adding it to a potting medium for houseplants, or for bushes or trees, use about 10-20% CHAR+ BioChar mixture for your total volume.
