FLOWER GARDENS

Consider composting flower beds every year as this is generally the best way to feed plants, trees, shrubs, and perennials.

In a new bed where nothing is planted yet, spread 2-3” of Kristy K Organics Compost on top of the soil and mix it into the top few inches.

 

In a flower garden that is already planted, spread a 2-3” layer of Kristy K Organics Rice Hulls mixed with 25% Kristy K Organics Compost, and work around the existing plants, keeping the compost away from their stems or trunks. If there are open spaces in the garden, work the mixture into the soil there, but otherwise just leave it as a top dressing.

 

If choosing to use a mixture of mulch and 25% Kristy K Organics compost, mix the first 2” of mulch with compost, and top with 1” of mulch.

 

Worm castings can be added to enhance the soil structure, increase water retention, and improve soil aeration.
