Truly unique, coconut fiber-based potting soil. Besides having the benefits of coco fiber (see Coco peat), also contains beneficial mycorrhizae fungi that are beneficial for root systems. The beneficial fungi in this mix are viable for 2 years. This organic mix is an excellent all-around potting soil. It contains true organic ingredients including aged fir bark, coco coir pith, pumice, organic green waste compost, worm castings, sand, fish bone meal, feather meal, blood meal, non-GMO soybean meal, greensand, kelp meal and gypsum, organic mycorrhizae, organic wetting agent. Beware of other potting soils claiming to be "organic," but which contain non-organic materials. Currently, no laws exist that regulate the organic status of potting soils. Ours is the real deal.

I recently used this mix to repot a lot of strawberries. I could instantly tell the difference in quality between this potting mix and the one I had been using at the beginning of the project. And within a week, I could see the difference in growth and health of the strawberries in this mix compared to the other mix I had previously been using. This mix has good nutrient levels, good drainage (but not too much!), and overall is a great mix.Review by Mary (on 5/4/14)
