Plants need fertile soil to thrive.
Soil quality is crucial to good development. Strong, disease-resistant plants need less watering and feeding when the soil is rich in organic matter.
Natural recycled plant and animal matter that has been allowed to decompose slowly and return to the soil is known as organic material. In a nutshell, COMPOST! The best compost-based soils and mulches are made up of decomposed marine and plant matter, as well as naturally occurring microorganisms that all plants need for healthy development.
100% ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS
Penobscot Blend is a special compost and peat mixture. Compost is an excellent source of organic material that will help your soil retain moisture and nutrients. Peat contributes to the blend's lightness and consistency.
In the Passamaquoddy Bay inlets, Atlantic salmon is farmed. Long before the arrival of the first European colonists, legend has it that the region's native tribes used fish to fertilize their crops.
Late in the summer, wild blueberries are hand-raked on the coastal barrens that range from Penobscot Bay to Nova Scotia. Fibrous organic matter is abundant in the leaves and twigs.
All along the North Atlantic coast, blue mussels are farmed and harvested. Crushed shells are high in calcium and help aerate and texture low, acidic soils like those found in the Northeast.
Sphagnum peat is the decomposed remnants of a moss that flourished in coastal bogs during the Ice Age. Its ability to retain water makes it an important component.
How To Plant With Penobscot Blend Compost & Peat
Dig a hole twice the depth and width of the root ball. Place the plant in the bottom of the hole with the stem centered and the crown just above the lip. If the root ball is covered in burlap, make sure to break it loose.
Fill in with Penobscot Blend and soil in equal sections, tamping around the plant. Until the plant has built itself, water it thoroughly and on a regular basis. Use an organic plant food to feed your plants.
