This potting soil made by Vermont Compost Company is by far one of the best on the market. It is a compost-based potting mix developed for organic growers who want a compost-based germination and growing mix. Designed for soil blocks, trays, and pots, you will see your plants thrive in this mix. Use for seed germination, soil blocks, transplanting vegetable and flower starts or transplanting houseplants.
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.
Avoid drastic changes in moisture/saturation. Store under cover, out of direct sunlight. Protect from weed seed, petroleum products, and other contaminants.
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.
All ingredients used in Vermont Compost products have been approved for certified organic production.
