Scientific Soils Gardener’s Mix is designed to provide the same great results as our Professional Growers’ Mix, but with a reduced cost. We’ve accomplished this by:
A) Substituting cypress chip for perlite. Cypress chip does not steal nitrogen like other woods, although unlike perlite, which is closed-pore, it does retain some moisture. Structurally, it functions like perlite to help retain oxygen in the mix.
B) Substituting milled, vacuumed peat for block-cut peat. Milled, vacuumed peat is faster to produce, but contains a higher concentration of fine peat granules. Structurally, it functions to pace the drainage of the mix.
That’s it! Both the Professional Growers’ Mix and the Gardeners’ Mix are thoroughly performance tested, contain probiotic and endo/ecto-mycorrhizae and a full nutritional profile.
Key structural ingredients: Coir, cypress chip, reed-sedge peat, composted plant material.
What to expect: A slower-draining mix that requires you to water only every 3-4 days. Pot up your plant and relax!
