What's My Mix?

on April 20, 2022

Spring has officially settled into gardens everywhere, even though we’re still battling snow in Wisconsin. Your more fragile annuals have yet to bloom into the new season, but the tulips and crocuses popping out of the soil are determined to make spring dreams a reality. Early preppers have already gotten their seeds well under way, and are transitioning into the depths of the season. The weather may be delaying our outdoor garden preparations, but gardeners still have some work they can prepare for the beginning of spring. Now is the time for raised beds to be refilled, and flowerpots and vegetable containers to get a refresher. Soon you’ll be scanning the aisles for your favorite soil amendments, and the best growing mediums that can get the job done.

We have a variety of soil mixes here at Purple Cow Organics, which means that gardeners have options when choosing the mix that’s right for you. Our mixes are diversified and engineered to help with growing different plants in different mediums, and meeting nutritional needs across the board. From water only mixes with all the fertility needed for heavy feeding plants, to customizable blends that allow growers to create their own mix of nutrients, we have the right mixes to grow beautiful produce and gorgeous flowers. Because we have so many mixes, it’s important to know the differences between what they provide. To help you understand the different benefits that each of our blends has, check out the breakdown below:

Of our soil mixes, Purple Cow IndiCanja is the most nutrient-dense. Designed for the booming hemp and cannabis industry, IndiCanja is a water-only soil that’s packed with nutrients. However, the benefits of IndiCanja don’t stop there! IndiCanja’s nutrient density also makes it an excellent choice for growing heavy feeding vegetables and flowers in containers. Tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and cucumbers are all incredible when grown in IndiCanja. Geraniums and mums are hungry flowers that would be happiest with a lot of nutrition, which makes them perfect flowers for growing in IndiCanja.

 

  All-Purpose Veggie Mix is an organic and all-natural blend for growing hearty and flavorful veggies. Perfect for both smaller and larger containers, Veggie Mix grows hearty vegetables and rich blooms, bringing farm-to-table to your own backyard. Heavy and light feeding plants alike find happy homes in this mix, but will need some extra fertility every so often in order to continue giving you the beautiful results you see at the beginning of planting. We recommend pairing our Bio-Active All-Purpose Fertilizer with this blend when extra fertility is needed. 

Our Raised Bed Mix is perfect for… well… your raised beds! This blend is a weed seed and topsoil free blend, perfect for filling your raised beds with rich organic material. Gardening in cities often takes the form of raised beds, mainly because many neighborhoods can have soil with a high lead content. Raised Bed Mix is compost-based, made with OMRI listed ingredients, and does not contain topsoil, meaning your garden beds are free from any potential contaminants. Raised Bed Mix pairs well with our All-Purpose fertilizer, and our BioActive Vegetable Supercharger to bring the nutrition and microbes your plants need for their best season.

 

 

Potting mixes are more than just the generic ‘plant dirt’. Potting mixes are specially designed to hold water and provide nutrients to your plants, while giving them rich organic material to thrive in. Purple Cow’s Activated Potting Mix contains a specialized mineral complex that will continue to feed your plants long after planting. Lighter feeding flowers and herbs can even be fed for upwards of 2 months! It’s perfect for large or small containers, and is environmentally friendly because it contains OMRI-listed ingredients and less peat than most potting soils. Our Potting Mix holds water like a sponge, perfect for houseplant lovers that take a hands-off approach, or for outdoor containers that won’t need to be watered as frequently.


Gardeners and growers have vastly different needs, from the plants they grow, to how they’re growing. Purple Cow Organics provides mixes that help growers and gardeners to create their most productive garden, whether growing hemp or hostas.
