VITAL EARTH'S ORGANIC COMPOST

Our organic compost is exceptionally rich in organic matter. Humus is the life of your soil. Without it, soil is inactive and unable to produce plants, grass, or flowers. Humus is important because it retains moisture in the soil, loosens the soil permitting better aeration and drainage, and encourages the increase of soil organisms which help make nutrients available to plants. It adds body to light soil and loosens heavy, sticky soil. The internal temperature of Vital Earth’s Organic Compost OMRI is brought to between 140° and 150° for at least 15 days, turning it to ensure all material is exposed to this temperature. This process kills pathogens and weed seeds, ensuring a premium product that is vital for organic farms and gardens. In all, the materials are composted and cured for 12 to 18 months and turned at least 3 times.

NEW LAWNS: put 4”–6” of compost on the soil and till to a depth of 5”–8”. Existing Lawns: apply a thin layer up to a 1/4” of fine compost on the lawn and water it in well.

FILL IN PATCHES: Create a mixture of 30% compost, 60% topsoil, 10% grass seed. Spread a 2”–4” layer over the patch and water thoroughly.

GARDENS: Add compost to your garden each year in spring or early summer, before planting. Till the soil to a depth of 5”–10”, then apply 4” of compost on top and till once more to mix. Throughout the growing season, add a sprinkle of compost mixed with soil as a top layer.

TREES AND SHRUBS: Mix compost with soil—dug from the hole—for planting a tree or shrub. Use a mixture of 1/3 compost to 2/3 soil. Use this mixture to fill the bottom of the hole, around the root ball and up to the base of the stem, then water with Vital Earth’s BioPak.
