Vital Earth Compost$14.99
Vital Earth Compost is exceptionally rich in organic matter, and contains 39% humus. Without humus, soil is inactive and unable to produce plants, grass, or flowers. Humus is beneficial because it retains moisture and loosens the soil, permitting better aeration and drainage, encouraging the increase of soil microorganisms which help make nutrients available to plants. It adds body to light soil and loosens heavy, sticky soil. The internal temperature of Vital Earth’s Organic Compost is brought to between 140° and 150° for at least 15 days, turning it to ensure all material is exposed to this temperature. This process kills pathogens and weed seeds, ensuring a premium product that is vital for organic farms and gardens. In all, the materials are composted and cured for 12 to 18 months and turned at least 3 times.
