Nursery Grade Bark

SKU: BC263 Category:


Nursery Grade Bark is aged pine bark from UK resources. Air and water holding capacities are comparable to coarse peat fractions and nutrient buffering capacity is similar to peat.


  • High air-filled porosity (AFP) helps maintain healthy, active rooting and and ensure good drainage.
  • Good structural stability. It resists breaking down and keeps the compost stable throughout the crop’s growing cycle.
  • Low pH and low nutrient level which makes it an ideal growing medium ingredient.
  • Biologically active which helps suppress root diseases such as Pythium, Phytophthora and Fusarium.
  • Equally suitable for ericaceous and non-ericaceous species.
  • Ideal for making peat-reduced composts and top-dressing containerised plants.
  • Particle size: 3 – 12 mm
  • Can be used in any potting mix for containerised plants to encourage healthy root development.
  • Mix with moss peat or coir, adding recommended nutrients and dolomitic limestone.
  • Can also be used as a pot mulch to suppress moss, liverwort and weed growth.
