Cobscook Blend is a richly textured all-purpose gardening soil. Because it is made with compost, it gives you the benefit of requiring less frequent watering and feeding. Because of its water retaining qualities, it is not recommended for summer annuals like geraniums and petunias. We suggest it as an amendment for planting azaleas, rhododendrons and blueberry bushes. Its fine texture also makes it a good top-dressing for new lawns.
Cobscook Blend is made with a blend of fully matured salmon and blueberry compost (both locally recycled byproducts), mixed with aged bark, long staple sphagnum peat moss and horticultural limestone.
We’ve named this blend for Cobscook Bay, a complex maze of tidal inlets off Passamaquoddy Bay in Eastern Maine and home to countless bald eagles, loons, moose and black bear.
It is available in one and two cubic foot bags at selected retailers in the Northeast.
