Details

Our Woody Blend (70% hardwood fines and 30% Bloom, DC Water’s Class A Exceptional Quality biosolids product) is a great alternative to compost, providing organic matter as well as nutrients to stimulate improved plant growth of all kinds, including turf, flowers, trees and vegetable gardens.

How to use:

● For lawns and gardens: 1-1.5 inches of Bloom mixed into 6 inches of soil is usually sufficient to boost your soil content. Blend it well with your soil as you would with compost or other similar products. You can also use it to topdress lawns, using ¼ - ½ inches.

● For potting/container gardens: Blend 15-20% Bloom into a standard growing media like potting soil before filling your pot/container and adding plants.

● Don’t apply outdoors if heavy rains are expected.

Benefits to the environment:

● Bloom is a local sustainable product recycled from DC Water’s advanced wastewater treatment plant.

● It’s not only a recycled, “closed loop” material, it’s also capturing carbon and keeping it from being released into the atmosphere. Being made and distributed close to home, it also has a reduced carbon footprint from manufacturing and shipping.

Benefits to your soil & plants:

● Bloom is an all-in-one product, providing the nutrients of a fertilizer and the organic matter of compost.

● It helps improve drought resistance and water holding capacity, making your plants hardy.

● It’s great for flowers, trees, grass and vegetables, and helps improve root and leaf growth. It can be used indoors or outdoors.

● With Bloom, you’re getting a more concentrated dose of nutrients and organic matter than you are with other products such as premixed topsoil, so you’ll find a little goes a long way.

● It’s already in use by 80+ community gardens around DC, including the Washington Youth Garden, and is used by the District Department of Transportation to nourish street trees.

● The Guaranteed Nutrient Analysis is 1.5-1.5-0, ensuring important nutrients to the soil. The product has a Ph of about 8, which is slightly basic -- a plus if your soil is overly acidic.
