The Dirt on Good Soil

Healthy plants and people begin with a solid foundation in which to build a thriving, organic garden: the soil - where a majority of the flowers we grow and the food we eat is grown.   


Purple Cow Organics' product line of organic compost, growing mixes, soil amendments and targeted formulations are designed for home gardeners and takes the work and worry out of a beautiful garden and nutritious yield. 



A living, breathing ecosystem, healthy soil rich in proper nutrients provides nutrition for bountiful plants and supports a beneficial yield. In fact, there are more microorganisms in a handful of soil than there are people on earth. 



Soil used year after year needs to be rejuvenated. It takes 437 years to create one inch of soil naturally, and as little as 15 years in some areas to lose it. If a nutrient is missing from the soil, then it is not in the plants you grow or the foods you eat. 

Activated Compost

Available in 1 cu ft bags

The nutrients our plants need to thrive don't just magically appear. They come from the soil. But they only come from healthy, living soil that contains the nutrients your plants can absorb. Adding Purple Cow Activated Compost with PCO Mineral Complex to your gardens, containers, landscapes or lawns will infuse trace minerals, nutrients, and microbes into your soil, which will infuse trace minerals, nutrients and microbes into your soil, which will ensure that all the plants you grow will be as happy as possible.
