Create a healthy, thriving garden with our No Till Compost Mix (Coots), a carefully crafted blend designed to provide balanced nutrient levels and prevent nutrient lockouts. It's perfect for long-term gardening or creating a No Till environment. With high water retention and a rich diversity of beneficial microbes, our compost mix ensures your plants receive the ultimate care and nourishment.

Features and Benefits

  • Long-lasting, Healthy Garden: Supports a long-term garden environment with balanced nutrients that prevent lockouts and possible deficiencies.
  • Rich in Beneficial Microbes: Contains vermicompost, malted barley grains, and bokashi that attract essential bacteria and fungi for optimal plant growth.
  • Optimal Soil pH: The mix of oyster shell flour, gypsum, and biochar helps self-adjust and maintain the ideal soil pH for the growth of various plants.
  • Improved Soil Texture: Encourages water retention, drainage, and aeration thanks to the addition of biochar and palagonite.
  • Enhanced Nutrient Availability: Packed with premium ingredients that provide a broad range of macro and micronutrients, ensuring your plants have access to everything they need.

How to Use

  1. Do not plant directly into the No Till Compost Mix. It must be mixed with equal parts peat moss or coco coir and an aeration ingredient (pumice, clay balls, rice hulls, or perlite) in a 1:1:1 ratio.
  2. Open the external nutrient kit (2kg) that comes with the No Till Soil and mix it into the compost thoroughly.
  3. Combine the No Till Compost Mix with the peat moss or coco coir and the aeration ingredient, making sure to mix all components well.
  4. Once blended, use the finished Coots Mix for your plants. It's crucial to transition your plants to a 100% No Till mix before placing them in their final pot.

Do not plant directly into the No Till Compost mix as it is too high in organic matter. Mix equal ratios of Compost, Peat Moss or Coco Coir, and Aeration ingredient (Pumice/Clay Balls/Rice Hulls/Perlite) in a 1:1:1 ratio to create a suitable potting mix.

Why is the No Till Compost Mix beneficial for my garden?

No Till Compost Mix creates a balanced and mineralized soil that self-adjusts its pH level, improves disease resistance, water retention, drainage, and more. The blend also promotes healthy soil life and makes nutrients readily available to plants for optimal growth.

What components are included in the No Till Compost Mix?

The No Till Compost Mix consists of Vermicompost, Oyster Shell Flour, Bokashi, BioChar, Malted Barley Grain, Kelp Meal, Neem Cake, Volcanic Rock Dust (Basalt), Palagonite, Wheat Bran, Soft Rock Phosphate, Lengbenite, Bentonite, and Gypsum.

Which additional ingredients do I need to complete the No Till Mix recipe?

To complete the recipe, you need to mix the No Till Compost Mix with equal parts Peat Moss or Coco Coir and an Aeration ingredient (Pumice, Clay Balls, Rice Hulls, or Perlite) in a 1:1:1 ratio. This will produce approximately 75 litres of final Coots Mix from a single bag of compost.
