The Coast of Maine difference
Here at Coast of Maine we are proud of the quality and consistency of our compost-based soils. Compost, we believe (naturally decomposed organic matter) is the key ingredient. Ours are made using carefully designed and tested recipes which include the very best ingredients (sustainably sourced from pristine ocean waters and local farms) combined with rigorous quality controls. We never use biosolids, municipal or household waste. Close attention to detail with frequent turning, sampling and testing plus a lengthy aging and curing process produces dark, rich compost.
We use all natural ingredients
We believe Penobscot Blend™ Organic & Natural Planting Mix is the ideal soil amendment for for bedding annuals and planting perennials, roses, shrubs and trees. It provides the rich and diverse soil your plants need.

Follow these few, simple steps
Planting beds & gardens
Dig a hole as deep and twice as wide as the root ball of the plant. Place the plant in the bottom so the stem is centered and the crown is slightly above the rim of the hole. If the root ball is burlap wrapped, make sure to cut away the wrapping.
Fill in with equal parts of Penobscot Blend™ and soil, tamping around the plant. Water
thoroughly and regularly until the plant has established itself. Feed with an organic plant food such as our Stonington Blend™ Organic Plant Food
