Cover Crop Mix
The purpose of a cover crop is to create more 'live roots' in your medium. The more there are, the more the life within the soil is being fed by the exudates they release. In turn this increases microbial populations. As well as this the main crop growing within the pot will ramp it's processes in order to out-compete the cover crop which will help lead to improved vigour much earlier. Cover crops also helps to encourage the growth of beneficial fungi such as mycorrhizae which will aid in overall plant and root health.
For best results we always recommend to combine cover crop with a mulch layer. This way there is a more diverse range of species present, however just one can be used if preferred. Our Cover Crop Mix comes in a 100g pouch which is the perfect amount for 1x 15 gallon pot (or 1x 45L box of Eco Life Soil). To use simply sprinkle the Cover Crop Mix over the top of your pot once you have planted out and then cover with your mulch layer. As the crop grows it can be 'chopped and dropped' to form part of the mulch layer as this is slowly broken down.
