Application rate

Application of POSIDONIA® during planting of young trees or plants and throughout their life-circle, offers a good store of organic matter and contributes to their well-balanced growth because its properties act accumulatively


 

Pot- plants & containers

•When planting new pots mix in an one POSIDONIA® to two or three soil ratio


•On already installed pots add POSIDONIA® as a top dressing (2-4 cm layer) two or three times a year

Trees

 

• When planting dig appropriately sized holes and mix in a one POSIDONIA® to two soil ratio

 

• On already installed trees use at least 20 lt (age up to 10 years) or  40lt (age at least 10 years) POSIDONIA® on the soil under tree’s foliage as mulch or work gently into the surface

 

Vegetables

 

  • When planting in a pot or jardinières (tomatoes / cucumbers / peppers)

Dig holes, add (2-3lt) Compost Hellas Posidonia® mix with  soil in a ratio of approximately one to one, stir well and plant

 

  • In beets: (lettuce / onion / celery / parsley / greens)

Spread 80 lt Compost Hellas Posidonia® in 10 m², scratch lightly on top to mix with soil and plant the new seedlings at a distance (10-15cm)(depending on cultivation) or sow the seeds

 

  • In existing plants:

We use   Compost Hellas Posidonia® surface,  around the stem of the plant (perimeter)

Vineyards

• When installing new vinery mix 2lt POSIDONIA® well with soil per plant


• On installed vineries use 8-12lt POSIDONIA® per vine as mulch
 

Seedings

Seedlings and young plants:


Mix in a one POSIDONIA®, two soil, half perlite or pumice and one sand ratio. Keep blend slightly moist for 15-30 days and then sow or plant seedlings
 

Agricultural crops

Production of edible products:  

Every year we apply 1 big bag  of compost Posidonia® for each hectare, over the entire surface or in the  planting lines.

 

Production of non-food products:

Every three years, we apply 4 big bags of compost Posidonia® per hectare.

Lawns


 Lawn laying:

Gently work POSIDONIA® into the surface (at least 100 lt per 50 m2) when preparing the ground
