Whether you are replacing border soil, replenishing raised beds, or tackling new planting schemes, avid gardeners will know all too well that an early investment in their plant roots will pay real dividends when it comes to harvesting. Which is where SuperSoil comes into play!

Packed full of organic nutrients for optimal plant health, The Real Soil Company’s SuperSoil is the solution premium gardening consumers have been searching for. Amazingly rich, SuperSoil’s natural ‘boosters’ will stimulate quicker plant establishment and better resilience against pests and disease, whilst also enabling edible crops to benefit from nutritional enhancement and a higher crop yield.

Another welcome benefit comes in the form of improved water retention and release for optimum plant growth that comes from using natural topsoil. “SuperSoil” offers a more balanced and workable material for gardeners.

What’s more, SuperSoil is entirely peat-free and sets a new standard for sustainable gardening, perfect for those gardeners seeking the best peat-free alternatives for their cherished plots and borders.

The SuperSoil difference

Did you know that a typical bag of topsoil from the garden centre or DIY store Is likely to have a high sand content and include wood fibre, peat, plastic and even glass from green waste sources? Many of the bestselling so called topsoils are little more than blends of 80% sand and 20% compost soil substitutes, in stark contrast with The Real Soil Company’s nutrient dense, organic SuperSoil – which features enriched soil and nothing else.

This wondrous SuperSoil with its high phosphorous content consistently outperforms other topsoil brands, stimulating plant respiration and growth and providing the perfect foundation for luxuriant foliage and vividly coloured flowers.

Last but not least, being entirely composed of organic plant material this high performing SuperSoil also meets the needs of vegan gardeners who want a product which aligns with their own ethos.

Make the Peat-Free Pledge

With spring around the corner, The Real Soil Company is encouraging the nation’s gardeners to go peat-free, but why does being peat-free matter and why should gardeners be reaching for peat-free?

The destruction of natural peat land in the UK has become an urgent issue for British growers. Peat is the largest land-based store of carbon and when it comes into contact with air, its carbon combines with oxygen and is released as harmful CO2 – one of biggest threats to our environment. On top of that, huge areas of Lancashire, Yorkshire Northumberland, Cumbria, Scotland, East Anglia and parts of Cornwall are being lost to peat harvesting and wastage. A single square metre of peat takes 1,000 years to form and we are currently using it at a far greater rate than it is able to develop. With two million cubic metres still being sold in the UK each year, there is much we need to do to redress the balance in favour of environmentally safe options.

Going peat-free with the confidence to grow prize-winning flowers, fruit and vegetables has never been easier with the new SuperSoil, so why not make your peat-free pledge this spring? Your plants and grow-your-own plot will thank you, as will the environment!
