Soil, Fertilizers & Amendments

Indoor

Good soil is the essence of a healthy indoor plant. Soil that is full of nutrients and drains properly gives plants the best possible growing medium.

We stock a wide selection of potting mix for growing plants: tropical mix; cactus & succulent soil; African Violet soil; medium for seeds and cuttings; orchid media.

Outdoor

We have an excellent selection of soils for your garden, flower beds and landscaping. Our qualified experts will help you choose the right soil for your needs as all soils are not created equal. Balancing Nitrogen, Phosphorus and potassium levels (illustrated on our soil bags) will aid in the overall health of your plants.

Mulches, like Ecco Mulch, re-cycles untreated wood and the color is natural occurring vegetable or mineral based, safe for people an pets. Coconut coir is a wonderful sustainable alternative to peat moss, although we do carry peat moss. It is 100% natural, has superior water holding capabilities, and is a renewable resource. Red Cedar mulch is one of our favorites that add color.
