Microbial Compost

Post  outsideasy on 8/3/2010, 4:32 am

One of my neighbors and a fellow gardener told me about using a microbial compost in his garden because he had nematoads and couldn't grow anything, after aplying this stuff he was able to grow succesfully in the same soil and area where nothing would grow before. I was so amazed with what I saw growing in his yard I put some in my SFG bed, I thought it could't hurt. There happens to be a company here in Modesto that produces this mulch called Wonder Grow by (Grover Soil Solutions) and I have also learned about Dr Earth making this type of mulch also. It's new to me, does anyone have any knowledge of this stuff and what do you think ?

I have never heard of this product, but I'd love to hear more about it. How is your garden doing after you applied it to your SFG? Have you noticed any changes?

We started our garden project at our senior mobile home park here in Modesto CA and so I don't have any results to show or talk about except to tell you that I put one bag in each of my two 4x8 raised beds. My neighbor a few homes down the street put some in his backyard garden spot where nothing would grow due to nematoads and now that very same spot will grow healthy vegatables. I have aphids like crazy so it doesn't deture them at all but I hope it is helping to build good microbes in the soil to be benaficial to the plants in general.

Look at Modesto Central Valley by PNG-Grandma for the whole story of our project
