If you have been to our MGVOCC plant sales, you have probably seen the BigYellowBags of Soil³ compost. It is great stuff! We all know that soil quality is critical to successful gardening and Soil³ compost is excellent for all your plants: vegetables, annuals and perennials, ornamental beds, container gardens, as well as topdressing your lawn. It helps retain moisture so you grow stronger, healthier plants. And it contains slow-release, natural nutrients so your garden vegetables or other plants grow
bigger and faster.
Soil³ compost comes in a BigYellowBag that means no mess! The bag is tied shut so if you don’t use the compost all at once you can keep the rain out. This makes it easy to have quality compost ready anytime you are planting something new or filling a container. Plus, it is more cost effective than buying lots of small bags of compost. Delivery is simple and complies with social distancing. After you place your order online, someone will call you to get instructions on where to place the bag at your home.
The regular price for a cubic yard BigYellowBag of Soil³ humus compost is $184.99. With our discount code MGCobb1 you will save $20 and pay $164.99 plus tax which includes delivery! The fundraiser will run from Monday, May 11 to Sunday, May 24.
