Bu's Blend Biodynamic Compost

For good soil & seasonal care: Spread ½” to 1” of Bu’s Blend over planting area (for edibles and grass), watering well (for roses and other bushes), or drip line (for larger trees).  Water in (or let the rain do it for you) and let the microbes do the work. Repeat every 3-4 months.

For new plantings: Spread ½” to 1” of compost over the planting area, water deeply, and let the area rest for a couple days up to a few months, if possible. If not, it’s cool, go for it.  Plant whatever you’re planting. Put a nice handful or two of Bu’s Blend in the bottom of your planting hole and say something wonderful to the plant. Plants like to be loved just like the rest of us. Then, broadcast another ½” of Bu’s Blend over the newly planted area. Sit back and watch the magic.

Cover mulch: Spread 1-1½” of Bu’s Blend over your beds, pots and planters. Do not work into the soil. We repeat, do not work the soil. Let the irrigation or rain work the compost into the soil. Is that cool or what?

For poor soil: Break up the soil and apply up to 2” of Bu’s Blend on top. Water deeply & repeat every 2 weeks or so until soil improves.  The water will draw beneficial microbes deep into the soil, where they will work to improve soil structure and vitality.

Ingredients: Dairy cow manure, straw, wood chips, and concentrations of yarrow, chamomile, valerian, stinging nettle, dandelion, and oak bark.

Planting new Pots

When using Bu’s Blend while planting new pots you want to find a good potting soil. That’s tough to do but if you e-mail us we’ll recommend a couple to you. You want to use a 2 to 1 mix of potting soil…remember good stuff not cheap and from who knows where. Really mix it up. Go punk rock on it. Punk rock with love. Make sure you put a nice handful in the bottom of your planting hole just for good luck. Then plant the little guy. Cover him or her up. Water. Lay a ½” cover over the top and dust that with a slight h2o sprinkle.

Lawns

Hey…here’s a healthy option instead of poison fertilizers and toxic lawn foods. Broadcast ½” of Bu’s Blend over your lawn and water it in. Do this three times per year and you will have good karma and a great looking lawn. You can also use as a cover over seed on existing lawns. Broadcast your lawn seed then cover with a ½” of Bu’s Blend Biodynamic Compost and water. Feel good about yourself. Lawns contaminate more of our water than any other source. You’ve just broken the cycle.
