Raised Bed Mix
You thought The Bomb was attractive; but her sister
is the one you
want in your bed!
Raised bed mix is essentially like The Bomb without perlite. Perlite is replaced by organic, non GMO rice hulls for those times when the look of the white perlite is undesirable.
Add this blend to your existing garden or freshly turned top soil for the easiest and quickest way to convert your yard dirt into world class soil. This mix would be considered “soilless” by some, yet it works like a superior soil and has a tiny percentage of actual soil from the Dynamic Dressing compost and mastadon peat.
Super advanced soil with powerful yet gentle time release nutrients.
The most advanced and complete vegetative potting soil made. The new version of Raised Bed Mix has enough nutrients to optimally support most plants through the vegetative period of growth. Fully natural and organic. No need to add any nutrients for 4 – 24 weeks of amazing growth based on plant type. RBM is pH 6.5 and inoculated with billions of beneficial microorganisms. Competitors claim 27 species of microbes…we have over 20,000.
Raised Bed Mix is sold in 1 cu. yard totes or pallets of 2 cu. ft. bags
Coconut husk peat
Coco peat is a proven natural alternative to mined peat moss. Using it helps slow down peat extraction from environmentally sensitive swamps worldwide. Coco coir peat will last three times as long as peat moss and sphagnum peat moss. Unlike peat moss, coco coir is hydrophilic and will re-wet easily without using wetting agents. It can hold up to 8 times its own weight in water. Used as a growing medium/potting medium, coco coir outperforms most of the popular brands of peat and sphagnum peat. Coco coir peat promotes healthy root growth in plants. This eco-friendly alternative to peat moss is derived from the husk of the coconut. Coco coir is an excellent growing medium for both commercial and home gardening applications. The hydroponics and horticulture industries have observed that plants grown with the aid of coir develop larger roots, stems and blooms. This is because unlike ordinary soil, which is usually compacted, coco peat provides more breathing space and aeration for plant roots, resulting in better growth.
High nitrogen, Biodynamically prepared compost, fully composted at over 140F and then cured. This adds life, structure and energy including starting nutrients for up to a month with no feeding required, but is light enough to allow mycorrhizal growth along with the other organisms cultivated through the Biodynamic compost process. The result is one of the first true Biodynamic potting mixes available.
Yet one more way we build beneficial aerobic organisims. Compost tea creates its own living food web of beneficial organisims and light nutrients. These organisms crowd out and consume pathogenic organisms. They also help make nutrients more available to plants.
A natural trace mineral source, AZOMITE® is unique highly mineralized ore that is a complex silica (Hydrated Sodium Calcium Aluminosilicate or HSCAS) mined in Utah from a deposit left by an ancient volcanic eruption that was ejected out of the side of a mountain. The volcanic ash filled a small nearby sea bed. The combination of seawater, fed by hundreds of rivers rich in minerals, and the rare and abundant minerals present in volcanic ash created the AZOMITE®deposit which is found nowhere else on Earth. The deposit is very old, perhaps as much as 30 million years. Today, the geologic characteristic is an outcropping known as a hogback.
Harvested from an archeological excavation in the Colorado Rockies, this amazing organic material is over 45 million years old and has large amounts of humic and fulvic acid. It was the ancient plant mater surrounding actual mastodon and mammoth remains.
Humic Acid makes nutrients more absorbable. Essentially highly concentrated ancient organic matter. Humic acid is a principal component of humic substances, which are the major organic constituents of soil (humus), peat, coal, many upland streams, dystrophic lakes, and ocean water. It is produced by biodegradation of dead organic matter. It is not a single acid; rather, it is a complex mixture of many different acids containing carboxyl and phenolate groups so that the mixture behaves functionally as a dibasic acid or, occasionally, as a tribasic acid
A small amount is our final effort to correct the typically Alkaline water and soil conditions in Colorado.
12 strains of symbiotic root organisms that increases uptake of nutrients and water.
Beneficial Bacteria Inoculant
13 strains of beneficial bacteria break down nutrients and crowd out pathogens.

Organic, Non-GMO Rice Hulls
Rice hulls replace the Perlite for aeration in this blend for times when the look of the white Perlite is undesirable.
Kelp meal is a very high quality organic fertilizer. With an N-P-K ratio of approximately 1-0-2, it is a good source of nitrogen and potassium. It also contains minerals, amino acids, and trace amounts of other micronutrients. Kelp meal is seaweed, specifically Ascophyllus nodosum, and is harvested from the ocean. We primarily add it for it’s root stimulant and as a tonic for transplant shock.
Adds calcium & magnesium. Dolomite is ground natural limestone and will buffer acidic conditions yet never raise above 7.
Adds calcium and sulpher, both critical, increasing the calcium to magnesium ratio while dropping p.H. Gypsum’s bound sulpher is much less fungicidal than other sulphurs, helping microbes, yet still pushing against the dolomite to drop us closer to our 6.5 optimal p.H.
Feeds beneficial bacterial microbes and adds carbohydrates to enhance the flavor of fruits and vegetables.
Ancient sand deposit provides silica & potassium.
High nitrogen protein and excellent fungal organism food. Feathermeal has a good mix of soluble and non-available nitrogen to provide a great start and a long time release that you can still feed lightly on top of, if desired.
High in nitrogen,protein and phosphorous another excellent beneficial microbe food.
Fossilized Seabird Guano
An ancient and naturally chelated source of phosphorous. Our two source method insures that plants, and especially flowering plants have what they need.
An excellent natural source of potassium that is slightly more available than the green sand in the soil food web for immediate delivery.
