Do we add microbes in our soil?
Our compost naturally contains microbes! Don’t be frazzled by companies that add a few cups of microbe powder mix to their potting soil and boost the price like crazy. Microbes are far more effectively used in conjunction with planting and applied directly to the root zone. We provide a well-priced premium media and offer many kinds of bulk microbes at a better value than more expensive soil that includes microbial inoculates.
All our soils are mixed with dolomite lime to achieve an initial optimum pH of 6.0-6.5. Be sure to check your soil’s pH over time. Temperature and settling along with microbial activity and decomposition can cause pH fluctuations.
