Potting Soil for Container Gardening

She used to be a tree snob, but after walking barefoot on a Zoysia lawn, is now a Zoysiagrass snob. When not picnicking on her own Zeon Zoysia lawn, growing vegetables, identifying roadside weeds, or planting hydrangeas and Japanese maples, she spends her time pursuing the domestic arts of knitting, cooking, canning, making things like beeswax candles, and throwing dinner parties. Her great love is helping customers learn how to take care of their lawns, garden better, and enjoy the journey.

Compost Potting Soil for Flowers

Container gardens provide focal points or allow you to garden in areas that may be dominated by hardscaping, such as a deck, walkway, or patio. By using decorative containers and Soil3 as your potting soil – you will have an array of lush flowers or veggies in your containers.


Container Gardening with Soil3

Soil3 acts as the ideal growing media that will feed your flowers plentiful nutrients and fertilizers all while naturally suppressing disease. There is no need for soil amendments or fertilizers; just plant your container flower garden directly into Soil3 and its slow release of natural nutrients, moisture retention, beneficial soil microbes and PH balance will help your flowers grow healthy and beautiful.
