More than 35,000 species of bacteria and 5,000-plus species of fungi can be found in General Organics Ancient Forest soil amendment, composed completely of pure forest humus that is derived from thousands of years of naturally decomposed forest litter. Ideal for gardening and potting soils, it can also aid in the retention of water and nutrient, and is an ideal inoculum for actively aerated compost teas.
Ancient Forest is part of the General Organics "Vganic" line of products, which are vegan and contain no animal products.
Florida has got to be one of the hardest places to grow tomato's when the heat arrives. I discovered compost tea last year and I needed a product that could provide the type of nutrients, bacteria, fungi, and nemotodes (good guys) in one package. The humus is a soil from hundreds or even thousands of years old, untouched, and contains perhaps elements not found in todays soil. The tea is brewed, sprayed and poured over all my plants. Last year was the first year I ever had tomato's that stayed green from the bottom of the plant to the top and produced fruit in stifling heat. This year I have expanded my crops knowing that there is a better chance of success. If you have any doubt go to the YouTube video featuring John Evans using Alaskan humus and check out his success - most impressive and inspiring. I'm thankful that I have a store that sells high quality components for gardening. The Alaskan humus can also be sparingly used with peatmoss, compost for starting plants. I can't image a better product....
