What comes in a Garden Kit?

Mineral Blend

Boost field fertility and vibrancy with this broad spectrum soil conditioner and amendment suitable for all crops. Spring blend tops off the fertility tank and provides a complete crop feed to be applied before planting.

humates, greensand, rock phosphate, carbonite, gypsum, sul-po-mag, Dynamin, humus compost, sea salt, kelp meal, alfalfa meal

Instructions:  Scatter evenly around the entirety of your planting area – beds and walking paths alike! Put down in spring anytime at or before planting.

Application rate:  5 lbs per 200 sqft. You can also add 1/2 cup per cubic foot to boost your potting soil!

Liquid Feed

Boost plant vigor and vitality and aid in plant growth, production, and protection as a foliar spray or liquid drench.

sea water concentrate, fish hydrolysate, calcium carbonate, magnesium sulfate, molasses, phosphate rock, magnesium chloride, boric acid, manganese sulfate, kelp, copper sulfate, zinc sulfate, cobalt sulfate, sodium molybdate, fulvic acids, worm castings, humic acid

Instructions:  Dilute 1/4 cup liquid feed with 1 gallon of water.

Application rate:  1/4 cup in 1 gallon of water (or more water as needed) covers 200 sqft.
Apply every 5-7 days during the plant’s life, including in the greenhouse. Use mixture within 24 hours.
For a foliar spray: Pour into a hand-held sprayer and spray above the plant so the mist settles on the leaves. Apply only at dawn or dusk as spraying during the heat of the day can burn the leaves. Any extra mix after foliar spraying can be watered out as a soil drench.
For a soil drench: Pour into a watering can and water the holes at transplanting time or the root zone while the plant is growing.

Seed Inoculant

Boost microbial populations with this broad spectrum mixture of bacterial and fungal symbiotes.

seaweed, calcium, humic substances and microbial inoculants

Instructions:  Put a pinch of inoculant in the seed packet, and shake to ensure a good coating. Strain contents through a fine sieve with a paper plate below to collect surplus inoculant that can be reused. Store seeds in a cool, dry, dark place, and the inoculant will remain dormant until the seed is planted.

Application rate:  1-2 oz treats 50 lbs of seed, so a little goes a long way!
The seed pores are extremely small, so you may not visibly see any inoculant on the seed.
Note: If you are purchasing seedlings, you can still apply inoculant. Sprinkle a little in a watering can and water your hole at planting time, or alternatively, dunk the entire root zone into the inoculated water.
