Fort Vee

All-Purpose Compost Based Potting Mix

Developed for organic growers seeking a compost-based germination and/or transplant mix. Designed for *soil blocks, trays, and pots.

Ingredients

Blended from manure compost; sphagnum peat moss; crushed, washed screened granite/basalt blend; coconut coir; vermiculite; gypsum; blood meal; kelp; bone meal. 

Uses

  • Seed germination
  • Soil blocks*
  • Transplanting vegetable and flower starts
  • Transplanting houseplants

*Note: as Fort Vee is screened to 1/2", the use of mini soil blockers may require additional user screening to meet mini blocker specifications.

Best Practices

Prep For Use

Wet product with warm water a few hours prior to planting or soil blocking. This allows the soil to stabilize and prevents soil from washing out of pots or trays.

Handling

Avoid drastic changes in moisture/saturation. Store undercover, out of direct sunlight. Protect from weed seed, petroleum products, and other contaminants.

Supplemental Fertility

Usually, no additional fertility is required. If roots have filled the container and fertility is needed, top-dress with Compost Plus and water in.

Storage and Shelf Life

Store in a neutral environment which encourages moisture retention and protects from UV light. For optimal performance of living soil, we suggest using it within 8-12 months from the date of purchase.
