This is without a doubt the best potting compost to use here in Kerry. Unlike the regular potting composts they retain to much moisture and rot the plants. John Innes being a loam based potting compost, maintains excellent drainage and when watering is required absorbs water straight away. Other composts once dry are a nightmare to resaturate.
