How to use


It really is very simple to use Living Memorial soil blend – no gardening expertise required!



The first thing to do no matter how you intend to use the product is to mix the Living Memorial soil blend and the cremated remains (‘ashes’) together.

You can either add the ashes into the soil in the bag or cardboard container provided or you could mix all contents in a wheelbarrow or large container.





FOR USE IN THE GROUND:


STEP 1

Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball of the plant or tree. Place the mixture (of the Living Memorial soil and ashes) into the hole, spread evenly along the bottom and water well.


STEP 2

Follow the plant or tree instructions for planting. Top up the hole with normal compost as required and water thoroughly





FOR USE IN A POT OR CONTAINER:


STEP 1

Add the mixture (of the Living Memorial soil and ashes) to twice the amount of potting compost and mix thoroughly.


STEP 2

Put the mixture (of Living Memorial soil and ashes and potting compost) into the pot or container. Create a well for the plant’s root ball and water well. Follow the plant’s directions for planting and water thoroughly.





PLEASE NOTE:
If your plant requires special growing conditions, such as ericaceous plants, then we recommend using ericaceous compost or adding an ericaceous additive to standard multi-purpose compost as required.
