Growing In raised beds or pots

Take the steps below to start growing your organic and Non-GMO healthy food garden


Build your raised beds or place your pots in the sunniest location of your garden, preferably in the southern exposure or in an area that gets at least 6-8 hours of full sun.


For Raised Beds: Till the soil at the base of your beds to open up the earth for future long roots and to start feeding the biology.


For Raised Beds: Prepare a Compost Tea using our Compost Tea for Fruits, Vegetables and Tomatoes, and drench the entire soil surface of your raised beds. This will start to awaken and feed the biology in the soil.


NOTE: Each sleeve of Compost Tea has 4 tea bags in it, and each tea bag will produce up to 5 gallons of compost tea. We recommend using 5 gallons of compost tea at the base of a 4x6 or 4x8 raised bed.


Fill your beds, pots and containers with Baby Bu's Potting Soil, up to 1" below the rim. It's an all-in-one potting soil that has everything you need to get your garden growing. It also has 25% of our Bu's Blend Compost in it.  


NOTE: Every 6" of filling, water the potting soil throughout, then fill another 6" and repeat watering.


Plant your seedlings or sow your seeds directly into your soil and water in. 

NOTE: If you add drip irrigation to your raised beds or containers, then make sure you hand water at least once a week throughout the soil surface.


After 4 weeks of planting, begin the Compost Tea regimen and use our Compost Tea for Fruits, Vegetables and Tomatoes, to water the entire soil of your raised beds, pots and containers. 

NOTE: Prepare the Compost Tea the evening of a normal watering day, then tea the following morning using the same amount of tea that you would use water. If you're using drip irrigation, then water the entire soil surface prior with a hose sprayer, then tea drench the soil surface immediately after.


Compost Tea drench the entire soil surface with Compost Tea for Fruits, Vegetables and Tomatoes once a month thereafter, excluding the winter months. 


At the beginning of every season, excluding the winter months, compost the entire surface with Bu's Blend Biodynamic Compost at 1" throughout and water in.


Every two years, preferably in the spring, remove the top 6" of soil, then replace with Baby Bu's Potting Soil. Then plant your spring seedlings and seeds directly.


Continue these organic protocols and you will have thriving crops each season and your soil will grow healthier every year.
