Fertilizer & Soil


When plants are actively growing they need a steady supply of nutrients. Although our soils contain many of the nutrients that plants need it is necessary to supplement them as they grow. In addition the heavy rains in the coastal area wash away much of the mineral content of the soil is each year. But remember that a plants needs change during the growing season.

Fertilizer is important to every plant because healthy plants require less maintenance and are more resistant to disease. Providing the right nutrients in the right amounts is imperative for a successful garden. We carry a selection of all purpose and specialty fertilizers for all indoor and outdoor plants. Fertilizers we carry include:

  • Evergro Fertilizers
  • Miracle Gro
  • 20-20-20
  • Gaia Green (Organic)
  • Schultz
  • Jobe’s
  • Kelp Man (Organic)
  • Alaska Fish Fertilizer and Morbloom (Organic)


Our selection of soils includes pre-mixed soils and soil amenities to enrich your garden bed or fill your pots. This includes potting soil and planter box mix for containers as well as outdoor soil (topsoil), soil energizer, manures (steer and mushroom), sand, drain rock, and peat moss for your garden beds.

Sea Soil

Sea Soil is a “living”, organic soil produced by consistently blending two ingredients: forest fines and fish waste. Sea Soil contains all the necessary macro nutrients (1.7-1.5-.6), micro nutrients and trace elements to grow strong, healthy plants. (There is no need to add expensive trace elements to Sea Soil).

Fish break down slowly into the basic nitrogen compounds most desirable to plants, thereby promoting the retention of valuable nutrients in the soil and plant foliage while prohibiting their quick leaching away from within the plants reach.

The bark in our forest fines brings all the “good bugs” and micro-organisms from the forest. Composted bark provides structure to the soil producing a healthy well-aerated environment allowing moisture, nutrients and oxygen to readily reach your plants roots. Sea Soil also is weed-free and has a disease resistant quality to it, eliminating the need for many herbicides. It has a pleasant odor, much like that of a rich soil. Sea Soil is also an excellent growth medium that assists in retaining moisture thereby eliminating the wet/dry scenario which stresses plants.
