Triple R Enhanced Biochar. (One application lasts multiple YEARS!)
Biochar is a Natural Organic Soil Improver, a specialised porous charcoal product. It has incredible properties including the ability to hold moisture and nutrients ready for plants to access. Biochar acts like a sponge making soils more drought-resistant and often reduces the need for fertiliser. This product can be mixed with up to 50 Litres of garden soil, potting mix or compost. Securely packaged in a bucket (5L) you may choose to use again.
The high carbon product adds structure to soils and is an effective means to lock up carbon that otherwise would be released into the atmosphere. By using Biochar you are playing an active role in preventing climate change by storing carbon for the long-term while growing better plants.
Biochar is often best blended with a nutrient-rich material before use. A free organic OCP Eco Seaweed sachet included - once in the solution just add to Biochar in the supplied bucket (allow to absorb) and then blend with a quality compost to help populate with microflora prior use (best left for 2 weeks prior use). Typically 10% Biochar to 90% compost/quality potting mix before using in pots, planting or general garden use. Can also be surface applied to established garden beds or placed under mulch.

Who is Triple R Biochar? Manufactured since 2015 our premium biochar is made from clean, natural woody plant waste. The carbon is captured efficiently as highly porous charcoal in a modern pyrolysis unit. Instead of carbon being lost as a greenhouse gas to the atmosphere a high percentage of the original waste is retained as solid carbon, ready to apply to soils. Microbes in the soil quickly move into the cavities the biochar provides, multiply and enhance soil carbon through their natural lifecycle while unlocking nutrients for plant roots to absorb more readily. Biochar also extends the plant availability of added nutrients as it is highly adsorbant and prevents nutrients from being leached away during rain events for example.
