Our Kigi Mix #1 is our proprietary Tree & Shrub growing media. Used on most potted and ground planted trees and shrubs at Kigi Nursery and Kigi Gardens. Similar to our Kigi Mix #2 this blend is more acidic and has more porosity than #2. All Kigi Mixes are made from high quality organic materials that promote microbes and are safe for humans and pets. We sell our growing media in 4 quart bags and provide a general quantity guide below. I would suggest ordering a little extra in case you come up a little short while planting a pot. If you do come up short and need to plant right away we suggest mixing our blend with a high quality organic potting mix. 

How To Use:

Potted Plants - Use directly as potting soil.

Ground Plantings - When planting in the ground mix in with existing soil at about a 50/50 ratio, also till some into the top 6 inches outside the planting hole to improve soil quality and give a healthy area for future root growth.

(Average #, miniature plants could use less and fast growers could use more)
