Spring is here. It’s the perfect time to plant anything from vegetables and herbs to flowers, trees and shrubs.
For gardening success, we recommend our ever-popular Flower and Garden Plus soil blend. Organics “By Gosh” combines humus with soil native to Austin and composts it for up to a year.
We then mix the result with our Triple Power Compost, gypsum, mineral sands and coconut coir, the fiber extracted from the husk of coconuts. The result? A product you’ll love for its many benefits.
Benefit #1: Sustainability
The product supports local biology while locally sourced organic waste materials helps Austin achieve its zero waste goals. And with a lessened need for materials transportation, we are able to create a smaller carbon footprint.
Benefit #2: Health
The composting method we use to brew Flower and Garden Plus kills pathogens. Triple Power Compost we use in the soil itself significantly enhances its overall nutrient value.
Benefit #3: Soil aeration
Our product uses gypsum, otherwise known as hydrated calcium sulfate. This gray-white mineral helps break the soil apart, which helps make soil nutrients more readily available to plants.
Benefit #4: Drainage
We also use mineral sands in our Flower in Garden Plus. These not only help promote water drainage, but add key minerals to the soil which enhances its overall richness.
Benefit #5: Moisture retention
A final ingredient extra you’ll find in our product is humus. Formed by the decomposition of leaves and other plant material, humus is excellent for improving soil water retention as well as its overall quality.
Benefit #6: Disease prevention/pest control
Because Flower and Garden Plus is made with compost, it has the benefits that compost brings to soil: these include pest control and disease suppression. So gardens produce plants that are not only healthy, but also healthier to consume.
We also make a popular Flower and Garden soil blend that leaves out the gypsum, mineral sands and humus. But why not celebrate the new season with our “plus” formula? It’s an extra organic favor for your plants that’s naturally good for the environment – “by Gosh!”
