pretty good

not bad, had some large chunks of horse manure that had to be broken up by hand, and the drainage isn't ideal but its pretty good. if you can i would recommend a Malibu compost base

Simply amazing

beautiful dark soil, wonderful fluffy texture, the perfect dirt. I haven't even added my own bugs and there was life crawling around when I watered in. No other soil you can buy is as biologically active, hands down the best.

So easy

I don't know much about potting soil or gardening in general. But after reading up on what living soil is, it made sense to go with buildasoil 3.0 because I wanted something that I can just water and walk away. And this was exactly it. The only detail I needed to be worried about was making sure my PH of my water was in a rough ball park of where i needed to be (thanks microbes!). I grew the best basil I've ever had in my life and it's 100% organic.

Gone TLO with BOS

Takes so much headache out of the growing process from running hydroponics and chasing chemicals and numbers around every day.

i also enjoy knowing i'm growing a safer cleaner crop, slower sure but like all good things worth the wait.
