Coast of Maine Organic Products Quoddy Blend Lobster Compost is made with lobster shells, compost and sphagnum peat moss. It is a dark-brown, complex soil filled with everything your plants need for healthy growth. It drains well and is an ideal soil conditioner for existing beds that need reinvigorating.
Quoddy Blend™ Organic Lobster Compost is hand-crafted to offer you a terrific composted soil for maintaining gardens, beds, and borders. It’s also a great base for over-seeding and repairing lawns. It is a naturally lightweight, dark, rich soil made from lobster and crab shells, composted manure, sphagnum peat moss, and lime. The lobster used comes from the cold, dark waters of the Downeast coast of Maine and the Bay of Fundy. Lobster shells are a rich source of calcium and chitin, and make an exceptional addition to this all-purpose soil amendment.
Made with: Lobster and crab shells, composted cow manure, sphagnum peat moss, and composted bark
Quoddy Blend™ is the ideal soil conditioner. To recondition poor soil, work 2 inches into the top 4 to 6 inches of soil. To maintain established beds and gardens, (for roses, most vegetables, herbs and flowers) top-dress with 1 – 2 inches of Quoddy Blend™
Planting trees & shrubs:
Dig a hole as deep and twice as wide as the root ball. Place the plant in the bottom so the stem is centered and the crown slightly above the rim of the hole. If the root ball is burlap wrapped, make sure to cut away the top wrapping to free the stem. Fill in with equal parts of Quoddy Blend™ and soil, tamping around the plant. Water thoroughly and regularly until the plant has established itself. Feed regularly with an organic plant food.
