The charcoal is used to mix with our growing compost to fill our pots and tomato ring culture. It needs to be 'activated' or it will pull nutrients out of the compost. I soak the charcoal in liquid feed (comfrey tea) which we make by soaking nettles and comfrey in a bin of water till it rots down. The liquid is sieved to remove any nettle seeds.
