Significant benefits for Plant Propagation


Biochar in Horticulture

Biochar is created by pyrolysis of biomass (in this case sustainable bamboo) in commercial facilities and quantities ensuring consistent quality from batch to batch. It is a tried and tested soil amendment used predominantly in horticulture and growing.

Biochar is a permanent soil amendment that improves soil structure and fertility, encouraging soil micro-organism growth and subsequent organic matter. Its ability to retain nutrients in the soil for increased cation exchange capacity improves plant resilience and helps reduce inputs and costs, whilst also enhancing resistance to pests.

Mixed with your preferred potting mix, biochar helps improve the strength and resilience of seedlings, cuttings, etc.

Benefits of Biochar for Horticulture

  • Biochar is a one-off permanent application that does not require re-application.
  • Reduces/eliminates the need for insecticides and fungicides, thereby reducing input and pest control costs.
  • Improves plant root strength, vitality and matter. The result is stronger plants that thrive making them more resilient and durable and better able to survive transit, etc once they’ve left your site.
  • Reduces the amount of fertiliser inputs required through its nutrient retaining properties, thereby saving costs.
  • Improves soil water retention making plants more drought tolerant and requiring less watering.
  • Organic – ideal if pursuing an organic route.
