  SAB Substrate 1 - Made in E.U.  

Professional mix for greenhouses and landscaping. SAB Substrate 1 / Gartengold substrate 1 is a fertilized peat with adjusted pH-value. For seeds, cuttings, pot plants and seedlings as well as for finishing mature plants. This peat substrate comprises a balanced combination of nitrogen, lime, potash and trace elements, which encourages fast germination and rapid growth. Virtually free of all pests, wood and seeds.

By means of an ecologically compatible re-moistening device, the capacity to store water will be enabled even after desiccation of the substrate.

Advantages Of The Peat-based SAB Substrate 1

The SAB Substrate 1 is a product that is especially suitable for the cultivation of young plants (seeds, rooting, transplanting) and is optimum for plant finishing (for example Hydrangea and Azalea and Poinsettia).

Due to its fertilization of approx. 1,0 g/l, means 1,0 kg of fertilizer in 1 m³ of substrate, a good supply with all necessary elements is ensured.The used fertilizer has the formula 14-16-18 in the NPK-ratio, all necessary micro-nutrients are included.

Additionally, a micro-nutrient fertilizer is added, as well as a re-moistening device which enables the product to be wettened easier during the cultivation.

Characteristics of the SAB Substrate 1

  • High water capacity
  • High air capacity
  • Good structure stability
  • Freedom of harmful substances
  • Optimum pH-value
  • Optimum nutrient level
  • Uniform quality

The SAB Substrate 1 can be used for (examples):

  • The cultivation of vegetable young plants
    (Chilli, Pepper, Green plants, Herbs, Lettuce, Melon, Tomato, Tobacco e.g.)
  • The cultivation of outdoor ornamental young plants
    (Evergreens, Bedding plants, Perennials e.g.)
  • The cultivation of indoor ornamental young plants
    (Dieffenbachia, Azalea, Hydrangea, Poinsettia e.g.)
  • The re-potting of all kind of salt-sensitive plants
    (Ferns and Pteris e.g.)
