HOW TO USE

Preparing Flower & Vegetable Beds
One 30 lb. bag of Soil Perfector covers up to 12 sq. ft. Spread a 1” layer of Soil Perfector across the entire bed (2” layer for severely compacted soils). Work into the top 6 inches of soil with a shovel, rake or rototiller.

New Individual Plants
Dig a hole at least twice the diameter and slightly less deep than the root ball of the plant. Mix 1 part Soil Perfector to 3 parts removed soil. Follow planting directions and water thoroughly.

Container Gardens
Line the bottom of the container with 2 inches of Soil Perfector. Fill the container with 1 part Soil Perfector to 3 parts potting mix for improved aeration and drainage.

Existing Plants
Using a spading fork around the drip line of the plant, rock and twist the fork to open cracks and crevices as deeply as possible. Fill the cracks with Soil Perfector (Fig. 1). For large trees, dig narrow trenches 18 to 24 inches deep starting between the trunk and the drip line and extending out into the surrounding soil. Dig at least 5 trenches in a wheel spoke pattern. Fill the trenches with Soil Perfector .
