The plant with the carbon compost is on the right. With the pumpkins Iíve included the hand fork to give an
idea of scale. Each plant also had slow release fertiliser at the appropriate time (measured!), and when watering,
the plant with the carbon compost was given the same amount as the one without. The plants in pots were placed
side by side, to try and ensure growing conditions were as identical as possible. I was pleased with how all
the plants turned out, as I think they all did well. My initial reactions are are that the carbon compost
tends to grow things bigger, (especially rhubarb, and to a certain extent all the others as well)
and also appears to make the colours brighter in some cases (daisies and pumpkin).- Jenny B
