Garden Soil 101

Unlike topsoil, Schultz® Garden Soil is made of premium ingredients such as composted forest products, sphagnum peat moss, and other organic materials that improve soil structure in the garden. Schultz® Garden Soil also contain a premium, slow release plant food that provides nutrients for up to 6 months. It loosens clay soils and helps sandy soils hold water and nutrients. It is ideal for all flowers and vegetables including annuals, perennials, bulbs, roses, wildflowers, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, cucumbers, squash, peppers and other vegetables. 

For best results in soils with clay or sandy characteristics, we recommend amending large landscape beds and vegetable gardens. Using a tiller or hand spade, mix a Schultz® Garden Soil into the top 6 inches of native soil. Level the garden area with a rake. When planting flowers, vegetables, or herbs, follow specific package or plant tag instructions. Water thoroughly after planting and continue to daily until plants become established. 

If single plants are being placed in the landscape, make the planting hole as wide as possible-at least twice as wide as the root ball. Thoroughly mix one part excavated soil with one part Schultz® Garden Soil. Water thoroughly after planting and continue to daily until plants become established.
