  SAB Substrate 2 - Made in E.U.  

Professional mix for greenhouses and landscaping. SAB Substrate 2 / Gartengold Substrate 2 is a fertilized peat with adjusted pH-value. For the re-potting of plants, as well as for the cultivation of plants which require rich growth mediums.

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 2

The SAB Substrate 2 is a product that is especially suitable for pot plants, bedding plants, the re-potting of plants, as well as for the cultivation of plants which require highly enriched growing media.

Due to its fertilization of approx. 1,6 g/l, means 1,6 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.
