Horticultural Charcoal, also known as Biochar consists of the smaller particles or fines of English hardwood species. High in potash with a PH value of 8 or 9, the charcoal should be used one part to every 10 of soil approximately.
By adding biochar to your soil it can result in less fertilizer, less irrigation and more growth. On top of that by incorporating biochar into the ground you are helping to fight global warming by performing carbon capture.
