Coast of Maine 'Fundy Blend' Enriching Mulch and Seaweed
Mulching in early spring: Every year in the spring lay down a layer of 2 to 3 inches of Fundy Blend around small perennials, annuals and newly planted flower and vegetable seedlings. With larger plants, shrubs and trees you can apply Fundy Blend to a depth of 4 inches. This will ensure maxi-mum protection and enhance appearance
Mulching in mid summer: Because the kelp in Fundy Blend helps hold moisture in your soil, you may want to add an additional inch or two in July to add further protection in the event of a hot, dry summer.
Mulching in fall: Because the bark in Fundy Blend is almost completely decomposed, it can be dug into beds and gardens in the fall, providing your soil with a rich and immediate source of organic material. You may want to add a bag or two of Coast of Maine’s Quoddy Blend Lobster Compost to add additional organic material to your soil that will pay dividends in the spring.
Soil conditioner: You can also use Fundy Blend as a soil conditioner. With poor soils, work as much as 2 inches into the top 4 to 6 inches of soil. To maintain healthy soils and for heavy feeders like roses and most vegetables, 1 inch of Fundy Blend is sufficient. For normal feeders like herbs and flowering plants, 1/2 inch will do.
