This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Whitney Farms. All opinions are 100% mine.
I get quite a few offers to do sponsored posts, but haven't felt comfortable doing one. If I'm going to write about a product, for me, it has to be something I'd actually use. I've been buying Whitney Farms steer manure every season for as long as I can remember. I've also used their potting soil and compost and buy it anytime it's on sale. So when I saw the brand name show up in my inbox as a post opportunity, I was excited to pop over and see what it was for.
If your dirt is anything like mine, adding some sort of amendment to it every year is an absolute must. Plants need to be able to spread their roots out if you want them to grow and expecting them to do that in clay soil is ridiculous. It just isn't gonna work. Whitney Farms® has a full line of 100% natural plant soils with no additives and nothing artificial. Using organic soil is a good thing, whether your planting edibles in a raised bed or ornamentals in the garden.
Whitney Farms® also offers organic plant food. I'll be a fertilizing fool here in just a few weeks. When you have such a short growing season, like here in the Pacific Northwest, you need all the help you can get to make those annuals put on a show faster and longer. I do this by giving my plants the extra boost they need in the form of plant food.
Now, I'm not gonna lie, conventional products are generally what come home with me because of the cost factor. But if price wasn't an issue, I'd always buy organic soil and plant food. So I was happy to see Whitney Farms is offering a $3 dollar coupon to use toward their products, which as I mentioned, I'm already a fan of.
By using organic, I can have my plants looking like this, without leaching a bunch of chemicals into the earth.
Now I'm off to get my coupon, planting season is comin' on fast and furious.
