Ultimate Potting Soil
3 cubic feet
Ultimate Potting Soil, as the name suggests is one of the best amendments on the market. It is very high in organic matter, mostly Canadian peat moss that will ensure a competitive advantage when transplanting your trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. Ultimate will help sandy soils by retaining moisture and helps clay soils by creating drainage, with the end result being a great environment for root development. We recommend using Ultimate in a 50/50 ratio with your existing soil when planting.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:
These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.
About sizes of our plants:
Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
