Mixed with native soil, it helps aerate and add texture and promotes better root growth. When used around new plantings, it provides the nutrients and microorganisms needed for a strong start.
Great planting amendment for annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees; conditioning garden beds and borders. Also terrific for growing vegetables!

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.
