You’ve been working hard all summer to keep your garden healthy and growing – watering, weeding, and fertilizing. Those garden-enthusiast friends of yours are always spouting off about how great their gardens are doing with Leafgro, but you’re not sure you want to try something new.
Can Leafgro be beneficial to creating a fruitful, healthy garden?
What Is Leafgro?
Before we determine whether Leafgro is good for your plants, we need to explore exactly what it is.
Leafgro is a 100 percent organic compost designed to help improve the quality of your soil. It’s also native to the central Maryland area, made up of composted leaves and grass clippings collected in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties.
Each fall, the Maryland Environmental Service collects leaves otherwise destined for the landfill and takes them to composting facilities. Throughout the fall and winter, the rows of decomposing leaves are turned and shredded regularly to help accelerate the composting process. In spring, grass clippings are added into this mix. Once composting is complete, the mixture is dried, screened, and sold.
How Do You Use Leafgro?
Use Leafgro just as you would any other compost mixture. Place it around your garden to help nourish the soil for thriving plants in the summer and fall. No need to do anything differently than you’re already doing!
So, Is Leafgro Beneficial to Your Garden?
Yes! Because it’s made of completely organic materials – with the bonus of being locally sourced – Leafgro will be just as beneficial to your garden as any compost you would make yourself or buy elsewhere. It’s just compost you don’t have to make yourself, which saves you time and effort.
Using Leafgro exclusively or in combination with your other fertilizers and composts will keep your soil balanced and your plants healthy and thriving.
