Terra-Soil® is a high quality growth medium. It is completely devoid of waste or animal products. The state-of-the-art blend consists of bog materials, leonardite, perlite and vermiculite.
The bog material is surface extracted and dried before blending. The deposit lies at the foot of an ancient volcano and so contains ash. The material also contains an abundance of sea shells which allow the deposit to be dated to the interior British Columbia post glacial period of 10,000 years ago.
The bog is a high quality phragmites type, named after the reed grass genus that it formed from, being dense and very stable. The leonardite is a naturally occurring oxidized form of lignite coal. The perlite and vermiculite, expanded volcanic rock and expanded mica respectively, are both odourless and sterile. Terra-Soil® is reusable up to five times.
When using Terra Soil, feed along with the Terra feeding program. Start feeding at half strength, until you see how your plants react to the strength to avoid burning.
