Research into increasing the use of recycled materials in the production of growing media - appendices - Star Plants, Barnham, climbing plants
This report deals with trials on twelve climbing plant subjects at Star Plants, Barnham, West Sussex between weeks 19 and 42 during 2003. They were part of WRAP project STA0013 which investigated the use of recycled materials in growing media.
The trials compared the performance of formulations based on 40% by volume green compost diluted with either composted forestry residues alone (PF mix) or in combination with peat (PR mix), and the nursery standard peat based growing medium; a custom mix by Bulrush. All mixes included 20% by volume bark.
