The key to a great garden is your soil. You can have the best-grown, quality plants, but if your soil is not so good, then plants won’t thrive.
Here are some power amendments that will improve your soil to help grow bigger, better plants.
For new plantings
English Gardens Soil Conditioner
English Gardens Soil Conditioner is composted pine bark that helps loosen and enhance the soil with organic nutrient-rich material to support the growth of roots. Most container-grown plants are now grown in a pine bark soil, so the plants adapt easier when soil conditioner is used. Mix in with existing soil at a 50-50 ratio when planting shrubs, roses, evergreens, perennials and trees.
For vegetable gardens
A complete organic mix of rich horticultural sphagnum and composted cow manure, Cow Manure is odor-free and ideal for vegetable gardens. Composted cow manure acts like a slow-release fertilizer for your plants while improving the soil. Work it into the soil before planting.
Organic material composted with mushrooms, this compost enriches the soil, supplies nutrients for plants and increases water retention. The pH of the mushrooms also helps the plants thrive and adapt to their new surroundings easier. Use this compost as a mulch or spread the compost about 1 – 2 inches thick and work it into the soil.
For containers or gardens
Power for your flowers! Re-energize your garden bed and container gardens with Organimax. This premium compost holds moisture and retains nutrients. It also contains mycorrhizae, which are beneficial microorganisms that empower the root system of your plants and extend them to water sources. Mix 1 part Organimax with 2 parts existing soil to rejuvenate your garden and containers.
For acid-loving plants
Sphagnum Peat Moss
Organic material from peat bogs, Sphagnum Peat Moss is light and porous to provide excellent water retention as it loosens heavy compacted soils and binds sandy soils. Great to enhance potting soil and garden beds. Spread as a top dressing and work it into the soil.
For gardens – new for 2021
This organic soil conditioner is created from tilapia waste. When added to the soil, it increases bacteria and microorganism growth which will improve plant health and flavor in edible gardening.
A little goes a long way. Remember to follow the instructions when amending your soil to get the full effect. For more information amending your soil visit any English Gardens location and talk with an expert.
