1 bag Sea Soil
1 bag mushroom manure
1 cup (250 mL) organic granular fertilizer
1 cup (250 mL) bone meal
1 cup (250 mL) lime
3 shovelfuls compost or leaf mould

Apply mulch in late spring, after the soil has warmed, and give it a boost in the summer, to allow your perennials to enjoy the full benefits of the nutrients, beneficial bacteria and microorganisms
