do i need Tagro?

natalija_gardenerMay 23, 2009


I am sorry my questions might sound so naive, but I am a completely new gardener(but determined:-))

I just rotatilled some ground for garden(1000 sq.f.) and it used to be a garden , but for three years it was grown with grass. The person who did rotatilling said he founds my soil pretty worked out(looks that previous owners had taken good care of it). Previously I wanted to add Tagro(1 inch), but do I really need to buy it. I have a Soundgro. Can I use it instead of Tagro, cause I already have a good built soil? Or you would reccomend to put something else?

Thank you, you are very helpful!

I wouldn't use anything made with municipal waste on a food production area.

i love tagro and put 2" on my flower beds every other year. Like bboy, I draw the line at the vege garden even though their site says it is completely safe.

I am in complete agreement with the other posts. I don't use it on my veggies. I would recommend it for the ornamental garden though. My roses were incredible and my trees grew in massive amounts! Clematis especially liked it. My parents were so impressed, they bagged some up and took it down to OR with them.
