Healthy soil is the key to healthy plants
Here at Coast of Maine we are proud of the quality and consistency of our compost-based soils. Compost, or, recycled organic matter that is allowed to slowly decompose, is the key to healthy soil. We create our composts with carefully designed and tested recipes which include the very best ingredients sustainably sourced from local farms and pristine ocean waters combined with a rigorous quality control process. And, because we are committed to providing the highest quality organic products, we never use bio-solids, municipal or household waste. Close attention to detail with frequent turning, sampling and testing plus a lengthy aging and curing process produces a dark, rich, compost that helps to build soil and enhance plant growth.

Directions for Use
Conditioning & revitalizing soil
Natural & Organic Planting Soil for Tomatoes & Vegetables is the ideal soil conditioner to improve and revitalize the soil in and around your vegetable garden beds. It is naturally lightweight and contains just the right ingredients to grow plentiful, flavorful tomatoes and vegetables.
New & Existing garden beds
To maintain healthy soils, apply Natural & Organic Planting Soil for Tomatoes & Vegetables every year. This is best done in the spring when prepping to seed or transplant and again mid-season when the plants need a boost. There are generally two different ways to use this product. For improved soil structure (sandy, compacted or clay soil), work a 2” layer into the top 4” to 6“ of soil before planting.
Alternatively, if you have been amending your garden plot and have fairly loose soil to begin with, after clearing out the bed of debris, add a 2” layer on top of the soil and direct seed or transplant directly into our Planting Soil for Tomatoes & Vegetables. This will dramatically reduce the number of weed seeds that germinate from the native soil and mean less weeding for you!
Backfill the planting hole with a mix of equal parts of Natural & Organic Planting Soil for Tomatoes & Vegetables and existing garden soil. Do not pack the soil down around the plants, as this eliminates valuable airspace for the roots.
Rather, water the plant in to settle the soil, adding more if needed. Water thoroughly and regularly until the plant has established itself. Midway through the growing season, feed with an organic plant food like our Stonington Blend Organic plant Food.
