Raised Bed Mix is an excellent choice for raised bed gardening. Formulated for both planting boxes and for raised beds on grade, this mix combines good drainage and soil porosity with good moisture-holding capacity.

Raised Bed Mix is great for vegetable, fruit, and flower gardens. RBM is formulated with a unique combination of ingredients in the blend which include native soil, compost, pine bark fines, and sand. An Organic (Omri Listed) starter fertilizer is integrated into the mix to help with quick plant establishment. An open soil structure allows for good drainage and allows roots to move through the soil more easily. In addition, the lower pH of this mix makes the soil more friendly to growing berries and other acid-loving plants.

After the planting season is over, amend the soil with additional compost.
