In coastal or cool summer zones, Soil Builder can be spring-planted.
Raw seed, requires Pea Vetch or Garden Combination Inoculant. Contains: Bell Beans, BioMaster Peas, Dunsdale Peas, Hairy Vetch, Common Vetch and Cayuse Oats.
Soil Builder Mix is such a great way to improve soil condition. It's less expensive per square foot than fertilizers and soil amendments and does so much more. I highly recommend it!Review by Katie (on 12/28/12)
I have been using this product since 1996 with outstanding results. It adds both a large amount of organic matter and nitrogen to the soil as stated. I do suggest using the recommended inoculant for higher nitrogen yieldsReview by Jabba977 (on 9/18/11)
