Soil and Blends

YukonGrow Blends
YukonGrow Blends is a series of unique high-yielding living soils made in the Yukon, by Yukoners, specifically adapted to our grow conditions and practices up here. Based on YukonGrow's staple inoculated + charged up biochar mixture, and making use of local ingredients wherever we can. Ingredients include biochar, beneficial microorganisms and worm castings, plus compost, peatmosss, perlite, vermiculite, and sand in proportions specific to usage. Dolomitic lime is used to fine-tune pH, and organic fertilizer is lightly added as needed. Just pour and play!

Branded Blends

Potting mix

A potting mix is a very versatile product that can be used to grow plants and seedlings in a pot or other container indoors or outdoors.. It typically contains an engineered mixture of sand, silt, organic matter (e.g. peatmoss, pine bark, compost) and perlite and vermiculite in various proportions (see specific product for details). Its pH is usually fine-tuned with limestone. Some contain a small amount of fertilizer or slow-release nutrients. Branded potting mixes typically are sterile. Potting mix sometimes is referred to as "potting soil" but it actually contains little to no soil because soil is considered too heavy.

Black Earth

Black earth is a type of top soil that is especially rich in organic matter.
