Why Use Our Flower and Vegetable Mix?
As you ready your garden for a new crop, it’s important to replenish the nutrients that were leached out of it last year, especially if you don’t routinely rotate your crops or fertilize regularly. Well-decomposed composts such as our flower and vegetable mix improve the soil in a number of ways – starting with nutrients. While some forms of additives can actually take nitrogen out of the soil, our flower and vegetable compost mix adds nitrogen back intothe soil, giving your plants the best chance of growing strong and healthy.
Additionally, compost mixes aerate the soil from the inside out as they decompose. By mixing our flower and vegetable mix into your soil before planting, you start off right by creating spaces for the small roots of seedlings to seek out water and nutrients without being blocked by hard, heavy soil. Without amending your soil with a compost mix, you run the risk of plants being stunted or unable to grow due to poor soil structure.
Flower and Vegetable Mix Good For All Types of Soil
Whether your soil is sandy or clay-based, our all-natural flower and vegetable compost mix can benefit your plants with improved nutrient content and soil structure. In sandy soils, for example, the compost can help slow drainage and allow your plants to soak up more moisture. In soils with a higher clay content, the compost can help to improve drainage and break up clods of dirt to allow roots freedom of movement and avoid oversaturation of plants.
How Much Flower and Vegetable Mix Do You Need?
The precise amount of compost mix that you will need depends on the quality of your soil. If you have not recently amended it with a similar compost additive, count on needing a 4 to 5 inch layer of the flower and vegetable mix (which will then be mixed into the soil). If you amend your soil each season, you will only need a 2 to 3 inch layer. For garden beds that are planted each year, simply work the flower and vegetable mix into the soil before you plant your seeds or starters. For more permanent beds (like those around trees and shrubs), just spread the flower and vegetable mix over the soil (similar to mulch) and work it into the soil only to the depth of an inch or so to avoid disturbing extant root systems.
