new-web.jpgThis potting mix made by Vermont Compost Company is by far one of the best on the market. It is a composted manure based potting mix developed for organic growers who want a growing mix with the handling and watering characteristics of a peat-perlite mix. Fort Light is desirable for growers using smaller celled flats and want a complete germinating and transplant mix. Blended from composted manure, blonde horticultural grade sphagnum peat moss, perlite, blood meal, kelp meal, steamed bone meal, gypsum and washed coconut coir.

Prep For Use: Wet product with warm water a few hours prior to planting or soil blocking. This allows the soil to stabilize and prevents soil from washing out of pots or trays.
Handling: Avoid drastic changes in moisture/saturation. Store under cover, out of direct sunlight. Protect from weed seed, petroleum products, and other contaminants.
Supplemental Fertility: Usually, no additional fertility is required. If roots have filled the container and fertility is needed, top-dress with Compost Plus and water in.
Storage and Shelf Life: Store in a neutral environment which encourages moisture retention and protects from UV light. For optimal performance of living soil we suggest using it within 8-12 months from date of purchase.
