Should I Use Compost or a Soil Mix?

Compost is a soil amendment and not a soil. It must be mixed with an existing soil a component in a soil mix. Viragrow's compost improves soil structure, chemistry, biology and water drainage thus improving plant performance.

Viragrow has two composts: Viragrow's EQ Compost (EPA's designation for Exceptional Quality) and BF Compost, a compost made from natural forest products. Viragrow's soil mixes, Garden Soil, Premium Garden Soil, Tomato Lady and Rejuvenate, are made from these two composts.

Apply Viragrow compost as a fertilizer substitute to the surface of raised beds, lawns, around fruit trees, and ornamentals and improve the soil at the same time.
