Big Biochar experiment

Would you like to receive a sample of  the soil enhancer Biochar and take part in a ground breaking experiment?

Oxford Biochar is pioneering the first large-scale experiment on the use of biochar on British allotments and gardens. It aims to gather quantitative data on above- and below-ground productivity, and qualitative data on plant and soil health of widely used fruit and vegetable varieties in Britain. These data, combined with existing information on weather and soil quality, will be used to assess the effects of biochar on the productivity of soils across Britain.

Research on biochar is still in its infancy: the long term benefits of Biochar on the Amazonian Terra Preta soils is well documented, but long-term studies on European soils are only beginning.  The Big Biochar Experiment aims to quantify the effects of biochar application on British soils.

There are a limited number of free Biochare samples available so please check out what is involved and apply by visiting:

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
