Whereas amendments and fertilizers can be incorporated into the earth, pre-mixed soils are prepared and ready to use. Healthy soil is the basis for healthy plants and contains a combination of minerals and organic matter: peat, clay, fertilizer, sand, wood fibers and compost. Good soil will sustain the growth of all types of plants and release the nutrients they need. You can also use soil mixes to replenish poor or deficient soils or to fill pots, containers and planters.

Black Earth

Black Earth is rich in nutrients. It improves poor and sandy soils, while enhancing water and nutrient retention. The mix contains black earth (hummus), compost manure and lime. Enrich with a good compost and use in your flowerbeds and vegetable garden.

Garden Soil

This is ideal for establishing a new vegetable garden or flower bed. It contains compost and will both lighten heavy or clay-rich soils and increase the organic matter content of your soil. It adds important nutrients and improves water retention. Weed-free and pH-balanced, it facilitates nutrient absorption, crucial to your plants’ health. Keep on hand for maintenance work, to amend the soil in an existing garden, or for transplanting jobs.

Patio and Container Mix

The patio and container mix is a pH-balanced light potting soil that ensures adequate moisture and nutrient retention. It supports healthy plant growth and abundant flowering and it requires less frequent watering. The mix contains black earth, sphagnum peat moss, composted manure, perlite and lime.
