Great gardens start with the best soil, from Coast of Maine - naturally! For container gardening. Enriched with compost. All natural ingredients. Approved for organic growers. Healthy soil is the key to healthy plants. Healthy soil rich in organic material is the key to growing strong, healthy, disease resistant plants that will require less watering and feeding. The best source of organic material is compost - naturally recycled plant and animal matter that has been allowed to slowly decompose into dark, rich humus. Here at Coast of Maine we are proud of the quality of our composts. We start with carefully designed and tested recipes and the very best ingredients. Just as important, we pay close attention to detail throughout the composting process. That means frequent turning, sampling and testing and a lengthy aging and curing process. Bar Harbor Blend is a unique, compost-based potting soil, designed for all your container gardening needs. Remember, healthy soil is the key to growing healthy plants. We use all natural ingredients. Bar Harbor Blend is a rich mixture of well-aged compost, seaweed (ascophyllum nodosum), very old dark bark, peat and perlite. It was designed specifically for growing and maintaining healthy, disease resistant plants when used with regular applications of plant food. Bar Harbor Blend is carefully formulated from natural ingredients to provide an ideal balance between water retention, soil texture, drainage and aeration in a consistent growing medium. Organic Certification: Bar Harbor Blend meets the organic production standards of the Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association (MOFGA) and is permitted for use in the production of MOFGA certified organic crops. Approved for organic growers. The Coast of Maine Guarantee: We have developed a line of compost-rich soils, mulches and fertilizers designed to meet the most demanding needs of the amateur gardener. We are also creating recycling solutions for aquaculture and agriculture in Maine and New Brunswick. America's best. Maine made.

Directions

Follow These Few Simple Steps: Getting Ready: How much Bar Harbor Blend Potting Soil will you need? Pots: For a 4 inch pot, use 3 cups. For a 8 inch pot, use 3 dry quarts. For a 12 inch pot, use 8 dry quarts. Window Boxes: For a 24 x 6 x 6 inch, use 12 dry quarts. For a 36 x 6 x 6 inch, use 20 dry quarts. For a 48 x 6 x 6 inch, use 28 dry quarts. Hanging Baskets: For hanging baskets up to 16 inches, use 6 dry quarts. The above are approximations, as the actual amount of Potting Soil needed will depend on the size of your plant's rootball. Make sure your selected pot(s) have drainage holes. If you are combining different plants, make sure they are good companions (i.e. they like similar amounts of sun or shade and moisture conditions). Planting: Fill your container with potting soil and tamp down lightly to reduce total volume. Scoop out a hole in the soil for each plant deep enough so the top of the rootball will end up about 1 inch below the edge of the container. Remove the plants from their nursery pots and place in the holes. Add more potting soil until it is level all around your plants. Tamp everything down again gently with the flat of your palms. Water carefully to avoid disturbing the top layer of soil. Repeat watering several times until water drains from the bottom of the container. Maintenance: Container plants need to be regularly watered and occasionally fed. For best results, water only when the soil is slightly dry to the touch. Because Bar Harbor Blend is naturally dark in color, it may be hard to tell just by sight. Feed regularly with an organic plant food.
