Protecting complex root systems
Biennials build up complex, fragile roots in their first growing season. These must be kept in balance to achieve optimal growth and flowering in their second year. Without the right growing media, nutrient lockout and pH swings can damage plants to the point of having to be thrown out.
Holding nutrients and water
Jiffy Substrates provide the roots with optimal air/water ratios to grow a strong network of mycorrhiza and other beneficial relationships. These help your plants maintain ideal nutrient- and water-holding capacities for long-term growth.
Growing media for annuals that eliminate soil compaction
Soil compaction can occur after extended watering. Jiffy offers solutions to eliminate this issue. They will protect your plants from soil-borne root rot and other diseases that result from a lack of air in the root zone.
