First it was designer sneakers and now we have designer planting mixes. But in the case of the planting mixes, the word designer refers to content rather than looks. Because if you want to grow gorgeous flowers and lush landscapes, a one-kind-fits all potting and planting mix doesn’t cut it. That’s why Premier, maker of quality growing mixes for professional growers and home users, has introduced their new Pro-Mix Ultimate line of soiless mixes.
“These top quality sphagnum peat based soiless mixes now provide homeowners and gardeners the “growers – edge” that professionals have enjoyed for decades,” says author and Today Show garden expert Jeff Ball.
“These exciting new products are lightweight, clean and easy to use. But the big story is in the results,” says Ball. With Pro-Mix Ultimate soilless mixes, even beginning gardeners can grow flowers, trees and shrubs like a pro.”
The Pro Mix state-of-the art double acting soilless mixes start with premium grade Canadian Sphagnum moss, an all-organic, disease free material that’s prized for its ability to grow great plants. Then, depending on the use, the sphagnum peat is mixed with a combination of horticultural materials, scientifically chosen and blended to give plants exactly what they need for healthy vigorous growth. Canadian sphagnum peat moss was rated best in growth tests performed by soil scientists, when compared to other growing mediums.
Pro-Mix Ultimate Landscaping Mix is a ready made-peat bark blend specially formulated to condition garden soil and landscape beds. This combination of 100 percent organic planting materials combined with the biological root stimulant, Ectomycorrhizae, and a complete time-release fertilizer gives homeowners a soil conditioner that is tops in quality and easy to use whether they are rejuvenating a garden bed or planting trees and shrubs. It’s great for improving drainage as well and holding moisture and enriching the soil
Pro-Mix Ultimate Potting Soil is formulated specifically for repotting houseplants, potting up container gardens and seed starting. Canadian sphagnum peat combined with just the right amount of perlite and vermiculite to retain moisture yet provides excellent aeration and drainage, gives plants just the right growing conditions to make them happy. The addition of a completely balanced slow release fertilizer helps them thrive and takes the mystery out of plant care.
Pro Mix Ultimate Container Mix was developed for hanging baskets and pots that are continually exposed to sun drenching heat and are constantly at risk of drying out. To help retain moisture and reduce the need for watering, water-absorbing polymers that act as tiny water reservoirs are blended into the mix of Sphagnum peat and horticultural amendments. A nine-month supply of a complete slow release fertilizer makes plant care easy, giving homeowners plenty of time to smell the roses and other gorgeous flowers they grow with little effort, thanks to the new Pro-Mix Ultimate line of soils mixes.
The brightly colored packaging for the Pro-Mix Ultimate soilless mixes features easy to use re-sealable vinyl bags and includes planting tips along with complete instructions for use.
