    I do a lot of container gardening. This allows soil reuse so I don't have to "get rid" of old soil and buy new

      Comments about Container Booster Mix:

      I love this stuff. It is full of Vermont compost and other things that are just right to nourish my perennial flower bed. I mix it with fresh potting soil and put it on my perennials every spring. It also transforms last year's potting soil from tired to energetic.

              Have used this before and loved it. I plant several pots in the spring; and this is so much better than replacing all of the potting soil each year. No more wrestling with those huge bags.

                It worked! Even for tomato plants in spent soil.

                  Comments about Container Booster Mix:

                  Limited on garden space, so we built raised beds. But the past few years the tomatoes dwindled in numbers and the plants just failed to thrive much. I knew the tomatoes really take a lot from the soil from the month of May onward. So last year, we used "Compost Plus" as well as some "Green Sand" and added a touch of Lime. Bingo! Once again we had our tomato plants yielding what they once were when the soil was "new", fresh and well amended. I will use the same three products again this year. In fact I'm here today to buy more!

                    Comments about Container Booster Mix:

                    I had several extremely large houseplants that were just too big to repot. They needed a boost, so I just put a couple handfuls of the booster mix on top of the soil. I didn't really expect much to happen, but was surprised to see greener leaves and new growth. The houseplants are thriving, and I am ordering more booster mix to use in containers outdoors.
