Vital Earth’s® Organic Compost OMRI™ is made from a recycled all natural blend of leaves, grass, plant pruning, bushes and woody material from Southern Oregon. Our organic compost is made up of 39% humus, making it exceptionally rich in organic matter. Humus is the life of your soil. Without it, soil is inactive and unable to produce plants, grass, or flowers. Humus is important because it retains moisture in the soil, loosens the soil permitting better aeration and drainage, and encourages the increase of soil organisms which help make nutrients available to plants.
Vital Earth’s® Organic Compost OMRI™ makes plant nutrients more readily available during all stages of growth and flowering. Vital Earth’s® Organic Compost OMRI™ is a soil conditioner which aids in the fertility of the soil, and helps to retain moisture in soil. Vital Earth’s® Organic Compost OMRI™ is also excellent in compost tea and as a top dressing.
Vital Earth’s® Organic Compost OMRI™ is heated to roughly 145 degrees and turned for 15 days to kill pathogens and weed seeds, ensuring a premium product. In all, the materials are composted and cured for 12 to 18 months and turned at least 3 times. Look and ask for the full line of Vital Earth’s Products at your favorite garden shop.
