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.

Could someone please explain to me how John Innes gets its name?

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.

 On the subject of flowers on a black background, this is the stunning effect that can be achieved with a simple bunch of tulips.

I didn't take this particular shot.
