Compost Can Be Used In Many Different Ways
Compost And A Mesh Tube-An Instant Garden
Garden Soxx offers a high quality compost based media that can be organic if you want to grow organically. It's weed free and disease free so you need to worry about management a little bit less. It's really as close to - just adding water - as anything out there. All you do is cut a hole in the mesh, with a pair of scissors or a knife, then with a stick or your fingers make a hole in the compost and then, if planting with seed or a plug, plant the plug directly in, then make sure the compost inside the garden sock covers the plug completely. Simply add water all year long, fertilize if the plants tell you they need more nutrients and with a garden this size, with no soil underneath and practically no weeds, you can expect about 80 pounds of produce per season.
