Bu’s Blend Biodynmic Compost-

Eco-Cast Worm Castings– Worm castings are quickly becoming a key ingredient in the organic garden, and when used in conjunction with our landscape mix, they feed your garden in a way that yields strong healthy plants that are much less susceptible to pests than those that are feed a dose of chemical fertilizers. Worm castings cause a plant to hyper-produce a naturally occurring enzyme called Chitenase. This enzyme is deadly to soft-bodied, sucking insects such as aphids, mealy bugs, scale, and thrips. It works by breaking down the exoskeleton of these insects which leads to either their leaving your plant, or to their death.  Worm castings can be, and are considered a natural, systemic insecticide.  In recent years, worm castings have become known as one way to defeat the tenacious, giant white fly that has migrated up into our region.  Ingredients: Natural worm castings.   Available in 1 cu ft bags.

Gardener & Bloom Soil Builder Compost- This is a compost that has a larger piece or particle size than any of our others, and as such delivers more raw organic matter into the soil.  With the addition of gypsum into the compost mix, this becomes an effective material to use when planting trees and large perennials into hardened and clay soils, for using when initially building a new garden bed and to use as a general blend when loosening compacted soils.  This compost is not recommended to use when preparing beds for seed germination.  However, this compost does make an excellent, nutrient rich mulch, that will break down into the topsoil within one year.  Ingredients: Forest humus, redwood chips, chicken manure, worm castings, bat guano, kelp meal, gypsum, oyster shell, dolomite lime, for pH adjusting.   Available in 3 cu. ft bags

Ingredients: 100% composted chicken manure and bedding.  Available in 1 cu. ft bags.
