100% Natural Activated Compost

Activated Compost is an OMRI Listed, plant-based compost which has gone through a Secondary Activation Phase. In this stage organically-approved ingredients are added at a specific time, resulting in a unique bio-catalytic effect, where microbial life flourishes. Nutrients are metabolized by microbes in the compost and are more readily available to your plants. Purple Cow Activated makes nutrients more available for plant uptake, is an ideal amendment to improve soil and growing media.
