‘Black Bear Biochar – Fully Charged’ contains a powerful blend of biochar, peat-free compost, animal manure and fish, blood & bone meal. The mix has been calibrated to enhance soil structure and boost plant growth from a single application.
The biochar is premium Black Bear product crushed to a coarse powder (akin to sand) in order to maximise surface area. The compost is peat-free and made entirely from certified composts. It contains a high amount of natural humus that helps improve soil aeration and retention of water and nutrients. The organic matter also contains essential plant nutrients that are introduced back to the soil. The manure is rich and consists of well-rotted farmyard dung and animal bedding. Manure is a natural source of nitrogen and other nutrients essential for plant growth. Biochar’s sponge-like structure retains water, nutrients and provides a home for beneficial microbes and fungi Biochar does not degrade and lasts for thousands of years in the soil. Therefore, it is typically a one-time application. Fish, blood and bone meal contain a host of organic nutrients which are absorbed by the compost and biochar meaning that there is an immediate boost to the surrounding soil fertility.
