FIVE GREAT REASONS TO USE COMPOST AND COMPOST BASED SOIL AMMENDMENTS: 

  1. Provides nutrients. When added to soil, compost slowly supplies major and minor nutrients to the soil and, in turn, to your plants.
  2. Fights plants disease. University research has shown that adding just a 1-inch layer of compost to soil significantly reduces damage to plants from several major plant diseases.
  3. Buffers PH imbalances. Compost helps neutralize both acid and alkaline soils, making growing conditions more favorable for a wider range of plants
  4. Protects plants during drought. Compost acts like a sponge, retaining moisture, then releasing to plant roots as needed. At the same time, it improves the drainage of heavy clay soil.
  5. Adds beneficial microbes. Microbes in compost help break down existing nutrients, making them more available to plants.
 
organic soil mix

ORGANIC SOIL MIXES 

ALL-IN-ONE- Composted botanical residues, size-graded and matured with fine woodchips. Typical use: as a potting medium for 3 gallon and bigger pots. 

ALL-IN-ONE+PINE- Pine bark (either 1/4" size or 3/8" size )is blended into the All-In-One at a 1/3ratio, making the end product lighter and providing superior drainage capacity over time. Should the customer so desire, more pine bark can be added to the mix.  Typical use: as a potting medium for 3 gallon and bigger pots. 


We can add perlite for greater drainage to any soil mix at the customer’s request, at a small additional cost.
