The same way spinach gets Popeye pumped up; compost provides serious kick to your soil! Compost has nutrients that plants need to grow to their full potential, like nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. It even supplies micronutrients that sometimes get overlooked. In some cases you may not even need to fertilize soil enriched with compost.
This black gold releases its nutrients as your plants need them.
In early spring, when growth is starting to take place, the microorganisms in compost are slowly releasing their nutrients. The organic matter in compost combines with soil particles to form small crumbs. These crumbs allow more space for oxygen and are great for root growth. They also provide channels for excess water to move through the soil. If you’re doing any gardening at all, organic compost is a must!
