12 strains of symbiotic root organisms that increases uptake of nutrients and water.
There is just too much good to say about worm castings, so here’s a link: The Benefits of Vermicompost
Heat expanded volcanic rock is the world’s premier organic aeration and drainage agent. This means that it lets water drain into the mix more quickly and then pulls air in as it drains out. See more about the advantages of perlite here. It is not Styrofoam as some people assume. It is rock.
Kelp meal is a very high quality organic fertilizer. With an N-P-K ratio of approximately 1-0-2, it is a good source of nitrogen and potassium. It also contains minerals, amino acids, and trace amounts of other micronutrients. Kelp meal is seaweed, specifically Ascophyllus nodosum, and is harvested from the ocean. We primarily add it for it’s root stimulant and as a tonic for transplant shock.
Adds calcium & magnesium. Dolomite is ground natural limestone and will buffer acidic conditions yet never raise above 7.
Adds calcium and sulpher, both critical, increasing the calcium to magnesium ratio while dropping p.H. Gypsum’s bound sulpher is much less fungicidal than other sulphurs, helping microbes, yet still pushing against the dolomite to drop us closer to our 6.5 optimal p.H.
A small amount is our final effort to correct the typically Alkaline water and soil conditions in Colorado.
Feeds beneficial bacterial microbes and adds carbohydrates to enhance the flavor of fruits and vegetables.
Ancient sand deposit provides silica & potassium.
High nitrogen protein and excellent fungal organism food. Feathermeal has a good mix of soluble and non-available nitrogen to provide a great start and a long time release that you can still feed lightly on top of, if desired.
High in nitrogen,protein and phosphorous another excellent beneficial microbe food.
Fossilized Seabird Guano
An ancient and naturally chelated source of phosphorous. Our two source method insures that plants, and especially flowering plants have what they need.
An excellent natural source of potassium that is slightly more available than the green sand in the soil food web for immediate delivery.
