This is a bag of organic soil that can help to provide your plants with exactly the nutrients they need, using entirely organic and natural ingredients. The product is perfect for containerized plantings but it can also be useful in raised gardens, or even to add to some compost/use as a fertilizer.
Organic soil is soil that is naturally enriched with nutrients in the form of organic matter. This matter will normally have been broken down by earthworms that will have broken down the plants, animals and other matter that decomposed on your lawn or flower bed.
The best organic soil is the organic soil that you have already in your garden because it will have been sitting for a long time and will be rich with the beneficial organisms and nutrients that your plants need. The only problem? Different areas have differing amounts of clay, sand etc. which may make them unsuitable for a lot of organic gardening.
Moreover, if you need soil for containers then you’re going to need to look elsewhere. That’s where Foxfarm FX14000 Ocean Forest Soil comes in. This is a blend that is made from forest humus, sandy loam and sphagnum peat moss to create a light and aerated texture.
This is combined with tons of nutrition from earthworm casings, bat guano and many sea-going fish and crab meal. It’s a superfood for your plants and a very enriched soil at a good price.
This product is high in a range of great nutrients for your plants and the reviews on Amazon really attest to this. Many people say that using this soil has led to fantastic growth in their gardens and they’ve also managed to keep mites and other pests away.
FFOF makes it easy to grow plants inside or out, and contains everything you need to grow your plants from seed. I love the stuff, as I don't have a lot of time to tend to my plants/garden, and I do not like using liquid ferts on my plants if I can avoid it…
If you're hung-up on bashing it for some reason, you either don't really know what you're doing yet, are a complete snob, or have an axe to grind for some reason. You can grow fabulous plants in this stuff of any kind, with or without adding fertilizers. So consider me a big fan!
While most of the reviews are very positive, a couple of customers did find they got ‘bad batches’. It seems this is very rare and hopefully an issue that the manufacturer has ironed out. However, if you do find that yours isn’t working, you should be entitled to a refund.
Other than a couple of unfortunate bad bags, this product is one with a huge amount of fans on Amazon and it’s easy to understand why. The long list of natural nutrient sources is highly impressive and as a truly organic product, you know that it’s fully natural and will pass on all that goodness to your product. Highly recommended!
