Hi, I'm sure this question has been asked before, What level of John Innes do I go to next when I need to pot on  the seedlings, is it No1 or No2 ? Thanks

    The composts were developed at the John Innes Institute, named after one John Innes, a nineteenth century property and land dealer in the City of London.

    Thanks, so can any company put the John Innes name to their compost, assuming the mixture is correct?

    Yes, John Innes is a formula rather than a brand name i.e. you can buy Arthur Bowers, John Innes compost.
