PLANTINGS
The Peat Moss and Shrimp Compost is recommended for the enrichment of existing soil and is suitable for most plantings. For best results, mix equal parts of Peat Moss and Shrimp Compost, sphagnum peat moss and black earth. Mix this blend into existing soil.

LAWNS
Upkeep : periodically during the season, spread 0,2 to 0,4 inches (0,5 to 1 cm) of Peat Moss and Shrimp Compost on your lawn. Rake the surface, then water to facilitate penetration into the soil. To etablish a new lawn : before laying sod or seeding, spread 0,4 to 1,5 inches (1 to 4 cm) of Peat Moss and Shrimp Compost over the soil, then mix uniformly into the top 4 inches (10 cm) of existing soil. Repair : after thatch removal, loosen topsoil that you want to repair and level. On the surface, spread a mix of 2/3 black earth (humus) and 1/3 Peat Moss and Shrimp Compost, then seed or lay new sod, keeping it moist until it has attained sufficient height (approximately 1,5 in. or 3 cm).

VEGETABLES GARDENS
The Peat Moss and Shrimp Compost should be applied in spring or automn. Spread 0,4 to 1,5 inches (1 to 4 cm) on the surface of the soil then mix uniformly into the top 4 inches (10 cm) of existing soil.

TREES AND SHRUBS
Planting : prepare a mix with 2 parts black earth, 1 part Peat Moss and Shrimp Compost and 1 part existing soil. Fill 1/3 of the planting hole with this blend and put in the seedling. Fill the remaining space with the blend, compact lightly then water thoroughly, keeping the soil moist for the first few days. Upkeep : after planting, the soil under the foilage should be kept free of grass for the first few years. Spread this area with 0,4 to 1,2 inches (1 to 3 cm) of Peat Moss and Shrimp Compost, incorporate into the top layer of existing soil and then rake.

CULTIVATION IN POTS
Indoor and outdoor plants : add 25 % in volume of Peat Moss and Shrimp Compost to your potting soil. For plants already in pots, apply 0,75 inches (2 cm) of Peat Moss and Shrimp Compost on top of the existing potting soil. Note : Peat Moss and Shrimp Compost must be used in conjunction with a complete fertilization program adapted to plant type.
