Compost HERO biochar blend is made with premium Wakefield BioChar, organic compost and mycorrhizal fungi to create a superior soil conditioner.
Wakefield BioChar provides an organic answer to reducing the need for chemical fertilizers and naturally increases microbial activity in the soil. This is a long-term solution that will benefit the soil for 100’s of years. All you need to do is mix it into existing soil to get started. Then the HERO line of soil amendments adds a premium, organic compost and mycorrhizal fungi to ramp up the microbial activity, water retention and your soil’s ability to feed your plants. With mycorrhizal fungi you are also reducing the environmental stresses on your plants.

The Biochar Bonus! Biochar helps reduce our impact on global warming.
Biochar returns carbon back to the soil that would’ve been released as greenhouse gases. This process is called carbon sequestration.
The compost in the HERO blend is aged. This means that the feedstock has gone through a 4- to 6-month thermic windrow process. The temperatures are documented weekly so that the material reaches between 130 and 160 degrees. This allows active fungi and bacteria to push the decomposition process. After the windrows have matured, the material is screened and rests an additional 30-day to ensure matured, cured compost. This avoids any risk of “hot” or unfinished compost.
Potted Plants: Mix BioChar Source in at 10-20% (by Vol.) of your potting soil.
Vegetable & Flower Transplants: Add a 1/2-1 inch layer of BioChar Source to the transplant hole and mix with existing soil.
Turfgrass: Add 1/2 inch of BioChar Source prior to seeding or laying down sod. Work into 4-6 inches of existing soil. Add seed, rake and water thoroughly.
