Secret Soil Recipe
My (not so secret now) soil recipe for sandy, sandy loam soils where moisture retention is a problem.
- Canadian sphagnum moss (Peat)
- Cow Manure
Mix these in equal parts of 1/3-1/3-1/3.
Add 1/3 package of our Micro Tree Saver to this mixture per tree or shrub you plant.
Top Dress with 18-18-18 about a 1/2 cup, evenly dispense in a 3 foot circle on the surface.
Mulch each plant with 4-6″ of wood chips, pine chips or equivalent. Then top tree the mulch with about cup. This helps prevent the mulch from absorbing nitrogen out of the soil (stealing from your plant!)
