Penobscot Planting Mix

Why Use It?

An all-in-one blend for planting annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees or conditioning gardens beds and borders. A rich, smooth blend of salmon and blueberry compost, tiny mussel shell fragments, and peat. Available in 1cf. bags.

  • Compost helps improve the moisture and nutrient holding capacity of your soil.
  • Peat helps lighten the blend and gives it a consistent texture.
  • Atlantic salmon is an extremely rich source of nutrients that plants thrive on.
  • The leaves and twigs of wild blueberries are rich sources of fibrous organic matter.
  • Crushed shells are a great source of calcium and help aerate and add texture to poor, acidic soils common to the Northeast.
  • Sphagnum peat is the decayed remains of a moss that has thrived in coastal bogs since the Ice Age. Its water absorbing capacity makes it a key ingredient.
