Since we began in 2018, we’ve been starting conversations about a powerful soil amendment which has, until recently, been somewhat overlooked by science and horticulture.
Although biochar has been around for thousands of years, we’re only now discovering how much potential it has. Not only for increased plant health and soil fertility, but also a valuable tool in the fight against climate change.
As recognition of biochar grows, we’re here to support you on your journey of discovery. We aim to provide you with the facts about biochar, how best to use it, what the real benefits are, alongside offering sustainable, high performing products at the best price.
What is biochar?
Biochar is an organic soil amendment that allows you to grow bigger, healthier plants with less water and less feed. Different from charcoal, biochar also sequesters carbon - so it’s good for the planet too! But what does all of that mean?
Ways to use biochar
Biochar can be applied in several different ways to suit your gardening processes. Although we don’t recommend using biochar for sowing seeds, use it for planting out or for co-composting to see the benefits.
How to activate biochar
Biochar is like a sponge. If you don't charge it up with nutrients first, it will temporarily steal them from your soil instead. Learn about gardeners favourite methods, as well as our personal recommendations for best results.
