PLAISTED SOILS AND MIXES
PLAISTED'S GROWERS MIX
Many professional growers use this mix. Homeowners can mix this product with their native soil to improve the soil condition to grow flowers, shrubs, and trees. It gives you better plant survival, plant growth, flowering and less plant maintenance. We recommend mixing 25% of this mix with 75% of the native soil. In clay conditions it will improve the drainage and help keep the soil loose and manageable. While in sandy soil, it will reduce the amount of watering and fertilizer needed.

PLAISTED'S AMENDMENT FOR CLAY SOIL
This mix consists of composted pine bark, organic compost, fibrous coarse peat, and coarse sand. The composted pine bark creates air space and allows water to get to the root system. The organic compost provides organic matter which developed a higher quality soil.
PLAISTED'S AMENDMENT FOR SANDY SOIL
This mix consists of screened soil, composted pine bark, organic compost, and fibrous coarse peat. The screened soil slows the water from merely running through the sand, and the small amount of composted pine bark helps create air space. The organic compost provides organic matter, which develops a higher quality soil.
