Potting soil is specially formulated to drain properly and not get waterlogged when putting plants in containers. We carry many different local and national brands at many different price points. What is true with many things, is especially true with potting soil–you get what you pay for. Better quality potting soils have extra ingredients (like perlite, vermiculite, lava sand, and charcoal) in measurable quantities to keep the soil properly drained and fresh for years to come.
We proudly carry Fox Farm soil products at both of our locations. This organic soil is chock full of beneficial microbes and fungi that help break down organic matter and feed the plant roots. The proof is in the pudding here. We’ve done many soil tests ourselves at the nursery and Fox Farm always comes out on top with spectacular results. Look for their specialty potting soils, grower mix, soil conditioner, and liquid products too.
COMPOST – MULCH
Compost is rotted organic material and is added to clay or sandy soils to improve aeration, drainage, and (in the case of sandy soils) water retention. Composts made from manure products also have a lot of nutrients that help plants grow and produce flowers and fruit. Rainbow Gardens has a lot of compost choices and will recommend the right one for your garden project. Mulch may be an organic product like chipped or shredded bark or it can be made of rubber or synthetic materials. It is used to hold moisture in the soil, keep the root zone of plants cooler, to suppress weed growth and to give landscapes a manicured and finished look. We carry a complete line of bagged mulches for all your gardening needs.
