Benefits of using biochar in gardening, and why you should use Carbon Gold


So what are the benefits of using biochar in gardening?

  • Biochar Magic: Biochar doesn’t just sequester carbon from the atmosphere, it is also a natural refuge for beneficial microorganisms in your soil.
  • Can I use plain biochar in my soilUsing plain biochar in your soil would be initially detrimental as it acts as a sponge and sucks in the natural biology in the soil before releasing it later.
  • Improved Soil Structure: Biochar naturally improves soil structure, promoting better aeration and drainage for your plants.
  • Improved Water-Holding Capacity: Biochar can hold up to six times its weight in water, ensuring your plants stay consistently moist while reducing the need for constant watering.

 What makes the Carbon Gold products stand out from the rest?

Our gardening products are not just biochar.   They also include a unique blend of mycorrhizal fungi, seaweed, and worm castings. This trio works in harmony with the biochar to elevate your plant’s health and growth. Whether you’re an experienced gardener or just starting out, this combination guarantees your garden thrives.

  • Mycorrhizal Fungi: This advantageous fungus thrives in partnership with plant roots and operates by receiving sugars from plants in return for supplying them with moisture and nutrients extracted from the soil through their fungal filaments. These mycorrhizas significantly enhance a plant’s capacity for absorption, effectively serving as extensions of the root network. Imagine fungi as your plant’s best friend, aiding in nutrient absorption and water retention. Stronger, more vibrant plants await.
  •  Seaweed: It’s like a superfood for your plants, which is rich in trace elements including iron, manganese, zinc, and copper which are often lacking in other common fertilisers. This promotes robust roots, sturdy stems, and lush foliage. Say hello to garden perfection.
  •  Worm castings: Worm castings, also known as vermicompost, are a mild yet highly efficient natural fertilizer, offer essential nutrients to plants. Empirical research indicates that incorporating worm castings into your garden can lead to substantial enhancements in plant growth. This includes increased size, strength, and the production of more bountiful, high-quality flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Additionally, these castings can bolster a plant’s resistance to various stressors, such as pests, drought, heat, disease, and other environmental challenges.
