Our Signature Potting Soil is a blend of our high-quality compost and pine bark fines. This perfect blend helps retain moisture and aerate the soil to prevent potted plants’ roots from rotting. While it is sturdy enough to offer support for your plants, potting soil is generally considered “light and fluffy.” It is typically not ideal for the same uses as top soil.
In much the same way that adding sand to our compost creates a perfect topsoil, the addition of pine bark fines is essential to creating a good potting soil. Pine bark fines are too small to be used as a mulch, but are considered an ideal soil amendment. The acidity of pine bark fines helps balance the pH, while the unique texture of the bark helps with both drainage and water retention. This combination of materials creates a soil that is ideal for container plantings and some flower beds.
