• Flower beds

Soil is made up of minerals (45%*), air (25%), water (25%) and organic matter (5%) The only element we can manipulate in soil, without causing adverse affects, is the percentage of organic matter. *all percentages are approximate
By increasing organic matter we increase the soil’s moisture holding capacity, loosen hard soil and help reduce
temperature fluctuations. Saving water saves money and helps conserve one of the planet’s most precious resources.

significant improvement in the soil environment so that it can better support beneficial organisms such as earthworms, mycorrhizal fungi and bacteria. The mycorrhizal fungi form a symbiotic relationship with plant roots, helping them absorb nutrients more

A Word About Organics
The word organic has several meanings and is very often misused and/or misunderstood. In the most basic sense, organic simply means a carbon-based element. Some people think organic means “natural” or “without chemicals” when, in fact, there are many organic chemicals that occur naturally!
We recommend Payne’s Soil Conditioner for Organic Gardening because it is fully composted and free of any harmful chemicals.
Even though the cotton plants were not fed with organic fertilizer and were possibly sprayed with pesticide, Payne’s Soil Conditioner has been through a carefully monitored composting cycle that generates temperatures high enough to kill weed seeds and disease organisms as well as to decompose any chemical that may have been applied to the plant. This process breaks down the material to it’s most basic elemental components, thus rendering it completely safe and 100% natural, organic material.
Flaked sulphur is added during composting, making our product a more stable acidifing component than other soil conditioners which have been subjected to the typical sulphuric acid drench.
There is even some nutritional advantage from the fertilizer that was applied to the cotton crop and is still present in the finished product!
