- new veggie gardens: till into the ground or in raised beds
- amend existing gardens
The nutrients in GroZone are good for the initial start of most seeds and lettuce and greens etc. Tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers etc. will very likely need additional food. Fertilization may be required after plants have established, according to crop type and amount of times the soil is used. We recommend a well balanced organic fertilizer. We also recommend topping up the soil on a annual basis. Note that this is not an indoor potting mix so it should not be used as an indoor seed starter.
Outdoor Potting Mix
This soil would make an ideal outdoor potting mix for containers. It has the right structure and with it’s high organic matter it will hold water well. As with veggies we would recommend fertilization dependent on plant material as required. It has an ideal pH for most plants other than blueberries or other plants that like a really acid soil.
Annual or Rose Gardens
GroZone is a premium soil that will look good with dressy annuals and roses. It should be placed 4-6 inches (or more) on top of existing soil beds and then planted directly into it. Feeding will likely be required as the season wears on. We don’t recommend that they build entire new beds with this soil that are 12-18 inches deep. It can work in specific situations, but with the finer texture and higher organic matter it may have tendency to get overly saturated in the winter. It will also tend to recede or shrink year over year.
