Healthy soil is the key to healthy plants
The key to successful growing is soil quality. Healthy soil that is rich in organic material means healthy, disease resistant plants that require less watering and feeding.
Organic material is naturally recycled plant and animal matter that has been allowed to decompose slowly and return to the soil. In a word, COMPOST! The finest compost-based soils and mulches combine decomposed marine and plant matter teeming with the naturally occurring micro-organisms all plants need for healthy growth.
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.
Cobscook Blend is a unique, all-purpose, compost-based soil designed for all your outdoor planting and gardening needs.
Remember, healthy soil is the key to growing healthy plants.
We use all natural ingredients
Cobscook Blend is a rich mixture of composted salmon, blueberries and farm manure, very old dark bark and sphagnum peat moss. It has been carefully formulated from all natural ingredients to provide a balance between water retention, drainage and aeration. It is an ideal all-purpose soil builder for vegetable and flower gardens.
Follow these few simple steps
Planting in Beds and Gardens
- When planting vegetables, perennials, roses, trees and shrubs dig a hole as deep and twice as wide as the root ball or container in which they were purchased.
- Place the plant in the hole so the stem is centered and the crown level with or slightly above the rim of the hole. With a wrapped root ball, cut away the burlap to free the stem.
- Then fill in around the plant with equal parts soil and Cobscook Blend. Push any burlap wrapping back into the hole so it is not visible. Burlap will quickly decompose if it has not been chemically treated. Treated burlap should be removed.
- Water slowly but thoroughly, taking special care of the plant until it has re-established itself. Feed as directed with organic plant food.
Cobscook Blend meets the organic pro-duction standards of the Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association (MOFGA) and is permitted for use in the production of MOFGA certified organic crops.
