Window Box plant food and toppings

There  are  two basic kinds of compost : those containing soil and those that are soil free and  are based on peat. If you are concerned  about  the environmental  effects of cutting peat. choose  a soil-free compost made  with a peat substitute.  These are usually  based  on coir,  and may  need extra fertilisers and more frequent watering.
Proprietary  'planter'  or' 'multipurpose'  composts  are generally  soil-free with a slow-release  feed, wetting agent  and sometimes  with water-retaining  gel added.
All soil-free composts contain  additives.  such  as lime to reduce their acidity, sharp sand to improve drainage, and a fast-acting fertiliser.  They are excellent for a summer display,  but tend to tire quickly, so are less suitable  for permanent plantings. Lighter than  soil-based  composts,  they are a good  choice for window boxes. Composts  containing soil are a mixture of loam, peat and sharp

sand,  and are largely-based  on the 'John Innes'  formula. They contain varying amounts of fertiliser, depending  on what  they  are to be used for. John Innes No.1 contains very little fertiliser making it suitable  for young plants, which do not grow well  in high levels  of plant  food.

Window Box plant food and toppings

John Innes No.2 has twice as much  fertiliser as No.1. It can be used for fast growing young plants  and  for slow-growing plants  which will be over-stimulated  by too much fertiliser.
For large or mature specimens  use John Innes No. 3. This contains  three times as much plant food as No. 1 and will sustain  plants in the same window box  for several years.
If you want to grow thriving acid-loving  plants, you will need an acid  compost. These composts  are lime free and are usually  labelled 'ericaceous'.  They also have plant food added.
Some arrangements are so dense  that the surface of the compost is hidden.  However, if the compost  is exposed,  it is  vulnerable to invasion  by weeds and moisture will evaporate from it in hot weather;  making  frequent watering  essential.
The answer  is to cover the compost with a layer of mulch which will help to reduce  these  problems.
