our compost organic? No chemicals are used in producing our
farm or leaf compost. Leaves, grass, food waste, and manure are the organic
materials used to produce our finished farm compost. After heating materials up to
165 degrees through the mixing and turning process, weed seeds are killed. However, we do not claim that this is a sterilized product. Stable compost does not reheat,
smell, or burn plants. Average Age: 2 years old. Average pH 7.8
Blend compost in at a ratio of up to 50% compost to 50% existing soils. Or use as a mulch applied at 1-2 inches, it helps soils retain moisture and decreases the need for frequent watering while additionally preventing weed growth. We like spreading corn gluten or Preen (available at most garden centers) over the bed to prevent weeds from sprouting throughout much of the growing season. For new beds or filling in spots we recommend our Supersoil which has our farm compost already blended in.
