Field No. 15 Peat Free Vegetable Planting Topsoil

What is it?

Field No.15 Vegetable Planting Topsoil is a nutrient rich blend of sandy loam, multipurpose compost and soil improver.

What does it do?

Field No.15 is ideal for re-potting and feeding of vegetable plants, mature foliage and shrubs in raised beds or containers either outdoors or indoors.

Benefits include:

  • It has a low bulk density which aids drainage and encourages the establishment of plant roots.
  • It contains a high level of organic matter that will help hold nutrients more effectively in the root zone.
  • It contains a balanced level of major nutrients and trace elements that will naturally encourage plant growth.
  • It has a high water retaining capacity, reducing the requirement for irrigation.

How do you use it?

For use in raised beds simply fill the bed with the Field No.15 vegetable planting topsoil then either plant seeds directly or transplant young plants from the greenhouse. Once the raised bed is planted it is beneficial to apply a mulch such as Field No.8 Ornamental Bark Mulch or Field No.12 Veggie Mulch around the plants to a depth of 75-100mm.

For use in pots follow these simple steps:

  1. Ensure the pot can drain excess water through the base.  It is often beneficial to introduce some “crocks” or broken polystyrene to serve this purpose.
  2. Remove the plant from its current pot and gently tease out the roots.
  3. Fill the base of the pot/container/raised bed with the Field No.15 so that the top of the root ball sits just below the top of the pot/container.
  4. Fill the area around the plant with Field No.15, firming it in as you go to eliminate air pockets.
  5. Water in according to the weather conditions. If planted indoors or in a pot standing on a hard area make sure there is an adequate drip tray/saucer to collect excess water.
  6. Once planted in a pot it is a good idea to apply a mulch product such as the Field No. 11 Pine Pot Mulch to depth of about 15mm. This will help hold moisture in the pot/container, suppress the growth of weeds and liverworts, plus provide an aesthetically pleasing finish.

This is great stuff! I can also recommend the helpful communication and the prompt and careful delivery.

This is the second time I have had a bulk delivery of Vegetable Planting Topsoil having previously bought small bags locally I have used Field Compost products because the quality is realiable and good standard, there is useful information online about each product including typical usage and a product specification sheet. The staff on the phone are very helpful and the delivery system is well thought out. If the customer provides useful information about the delivery site access and/or barriers the driver will be informed and adjustments made. Very satisfied and highly recommend.
I've used Field Compost several times now and they're products are very good. The soil and mulch is so nice to work with and I feel like I'm giving my plants and veg the best and it's peat free. All my orders were dealt with very quickly even during the lockdown and they're always very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't look elsewhere now and I'll be ordering their mulch again in spring.
I haven't had the opportunity to plant anything yet, because of this I can't comment on it as a growth medium. Comparing the product to other bulk composts it would appear to have a rich organic structure and good moisture retention without getting too wet. A good consistency with no obvious signs of contamination, stones, plastic or wood. Ordering and delivery were excellent, would recommend.
