Shrubs

Ensure your shrubs thrive

To thrive, shrubs require airy, well-drained substrates. A medium to large amount of fertilizer is needed, and a pH of 5 to 6. The Ericaceae family is an exception – it needs a low pH of 4.5.

Outdoor production issues

For outdoor cultivation, be sure to choose a stabilized and coarse substrate mixture, resistant to any type of weather. Because the crops are grown outdoors, root problems or leaf diseases can occur. And fertilizers could be washed away by large amounts of rain.

Coping with drought

However, long-term droughts are also becoming increasingly common. That means substrates must also be able to buffer enough moisture and fertilizers in dry weather.

Jiffy’s tailored substrates can help

Jiffy is here to help you solve these issues. We have many types of peat available, as well as non-peat raw materials, each with its own beneficial properties. We expertly tailor these to meet the specific needs of every crop and all growing conditions.
