Find the Right Mix for Your Growing Needs

Find the Right Mix for Your Growing Needs

After so many months of chilling wind, ice storms, and unbeatable snowdrifts, the warm spring weather has finally settled in, and the growing season is underway. The seed starting rush has mostly passed, though is certainly not over, and focus has shifted to overall garden prep, as well as getting flowerpots and containers ready. 

In the midst of Spring fever, comes a host of questions from customers pacing the aisles. "What does this mix do?" "What soil should I use this year" "How do I pronounce IndiCa.... IndiCon.... IndyConjahna?" (For reference, the answer to the latter question is 'in-da-con-ja')

With so much on your plate this season, we want to make it easy to answer these questions like a Purple Cow Pro. Check out a quick guide below to learn more about the soil mixes you carry, how to use them, and what the best mixes are for your needs.
