We are now pleased to offer Nature’s Creation Organic Potting Soil with Mycorrhizal Fungi for our 2019 garden season!
Some of our good friends in the green industry, Mr. Bob Webster, KTSA South Texas Gardening Show host & garden center owner in San Antonio along with his business partner Ms. Roberta Churchin were instrumental in the formulation of this potting soil.
Nature’s Creation readily absorbs water and holds moisture without becoming saturated. The soil dries evenly which all but eliminates fungus gnats and mold. It contains no peat moss but is a blend of weed-free and naturally sterilized compost plus coco fiber which resists clumping and adds porosity. In addition, the blend includes pecan mulch, perlite, mushroom compost, molasses, and native recycled biomass. Finally, Mycorrhizal Fungi is added to the mix to benefit your plants by increasing drought tolerance, water and nutrient uptake, and disease resistance.
This potting soil is more biologically active and will make your plants happy!
Will this be good to use in raised beds?
It will grow great vegetables or cut flowers, very productive and easy to work. However, since it is all organic matter, it will continue to decompose and lose volume, such that after 4 or 5 years, it will no longer fill the planter. If this planter is a long term project (5 yrs +), I would use mostly sandy loam topsoil, with Nature’s Blend compost mixed in at one bag per 20 square feet, and add more Nature’s Blend every year as it decomposes.
Would this product work as well as Nature Blend in an already established vegetable bed before spring planting?
And I’m afraid I missed your point. Natures blend compost will improve the structure of Natural soil and the composted manure and alfalfa meal in natures blend will supercharge growth as far as providing nutrients. Also supports beneficial organisms, which require organic mixed with the soil, like earthworms.
No. Natures Creation potting soil has superior internal structure for supporting healthy rootgrowth but it does not have the necessary nutrients. If you are using natures creation potting soul as your growing medium, I would more likely use a good water soluble fertilizer like HastaGro. That would be a winning combination!
How does this soil compare to a Roots Organic or a Fox Farm Ocean Forest ?
We carry a Back to Nature Premium Potting Blend that compares to Fox farm.
This is full of woody material ! I had to strain it to get all the bark and woody material out ! For the price you pay it is not a good product!
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I did respond to your personal email. Please check it and we look forward to seeing you.
Our Natures Creation Organic Potting Mixture does contain Forest Products which is organic matter such as sticks and bark etc.. This is meant to enrich the soil and break down over time. It also contains molasses and mycorrhizal which benefits the plant health.
Our Back to Nature Premium Potting mix is a more Peat moss based product which has a less chunky texture.
