I used Dalefoot Composts' peat free compost when I potted up this Sarcococca confusa, a highly-scented, winter flowering evergreen shrub. This shrub will be planted out in the spring, as soon as a space becomes available. The pot in this photograph is narrower at its opening than in the middle, with pots such as these, care is required to pot on your plant before it needs repotting so as to avoid damaging the plant's roots as you remove it from the pot.

The ridged Rootrainers cells direct the plants' roots to grow vertically towards the drainage hole. Rootrainers are easy to assemble, they open out like a book, allowing you to monitor how your plants' roots are developing whenever it's convenient. I grew all of the Sweet Pea plants for my 2016 Sweet Pea Trial in Deep Rootrainers.

I sowed all of the Sweet Pea seeds for my 2016 Sweet Pea Trial in Dalefoot Composts Wool Potting Compost. This peat free compost is made from a blend of compost that includes sheep's wool and bracken in the ingredients. Dalefoot Composts Wool Compost is naturally water retentive, meaning that your seedlings don't require watering as frequently.
