Royal Gold Mendo Mix was originally developed with the dry outdoor conditions of Mendocino County, California in mind. This mix is heavily charged with organic nutrient and has greater water retention than most soils. Ready to use straight out of the bag, Mendo Mix supplies all the organic nutrition your plant will need. The sweetest tasting fruit can be achieved by using water alone. However, the highest yields have been produced by using supplements with veg and bloom enhancers. Longer season plants will require increased feedings of complete nutrient as growth increases. Some gardeners choose to "top-dress" with this mix as well. Be sure to mulch the top layer to increase water retention. Mendo Mix also works great when mixed with clays and sandy soils.
