Oakdell Organic Compost

To All Gardeners: thank you for buying our compost. A couple of reminders: 1) Never plant directly into our compost - it is not a potting soil and you must mix it with 3-4 parts of soil, 2) When used as a top dressing, be sure to till it in a little with soil or when you water, it could form a hard crust.

Happy Gardening!

What’s in your garden?

And, unlike other brands, it has a fresh earthy smell.

“This is our fourth year using Oakdell’s Organic Compost at Thanksgiving Point Gardens. The compost has been great for our flower beds, tress, and shrubs. It keeps them looking healthy each year! We can always count on Oakdell’s Organic Compost to help us grow our beautiful 250,000 tulips for the annual Tulip Festival, and to make all of our thousands of flowers and plants look fantastic for the entire season.”
- Tori Latimer, Garden Manager at Thanksgiving Point Gardens
