Soil Amendments and Compost - till into your existing soil

FOREST HUMUS - aged humus  

Forest Humus is organically rich and fully composted, stable, and aged compost.  Forest Humus can be tilled into existing soil or utilized along with other Aguinaga products in custom mixes where the stability of a humus material is required.  Available at all three locations. 

COCO-COIR

Our Coco-Coir is a renewable, non synthetic coconut by-product rich in potassium and micronutrients. Used as a soil conditioner it naturally guards against plant diseases and increases nutrient uptake, which results in explosive root and plant development. Our Coco-Coir also improves soil structure, helps prevents soil compaction, holds seven to eight times its weight in water, and provides improved drainage and aeration.     Available at Orange location.  


NITROLIZED FIR FINES 

Nitrolized Fir Fines are derived from construction grade Douglas fir building remnants.  The fir fines are "nitrolized" to prevent nitrogen drag (the removal of plant-needed nitrogen by the wood.)  The particle size of this material is 3/8 inch.  Nitrolized Fir Fines improve soil structure, increase nutrient holding capacity of sandy soils, and improve water drainage.  Nitrolized Fir Fines are a stand-alone amendment but can also be used as a component in container mixes or soil-less potting mixes.  Available at all three locations.
