Large Container Mix
This blend is formulated for organic growing in large pot, container and bed culture where a coarse texture is preferred. Particularly suited for woody plants, shrubs, herbs, perennials, and the mulching of vegetable and flower beds. This is the mix we recommend if you need a complete soil to fill a raised bed.
Blended from composted manure and plant materials, composted maple and yellow birch bark, crushed and screened granite and basalt, blood meal, kelp meal, steamed bone meal, mined gypsum, vermiculite (a mica mineral expanded by fire), washed coconut coir, herbs (biodynamic preparations).
• large containers

Prep For Use:
No prep necessary. Keep moist in beds, planters, and containers for best performance.
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. Raised beds can be annually amended with Manure Compost or Compost Plus.
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.
