If all gardening success starts with good soil, why wouldn’t you want to invest in some and avoid those of poor or highly questionable quality? 

Some will say “Because of the cost!”  Well, remember that you get what you pay for.  And that’s why the soils and composts I recommend aren’t cheap.

I’d much rather you spend $10 on a bag of quality soil to grow a couple of very nice $25 plants, than replace those nice $25 plants two or three times because you stuck them into poor soil that cost a couple of bucks a bag.

But I know my GardenLine audience is always looking for a good deal. So, here’s a chance to snap up some seriously high-quality soil for an extraordinarily reduced price: Just get yourself to any of the four area locations of The Ground Up!   

You’ll find them at …

  • 8705 Katy Freeway near Voss Road
  • 19102 FM 1093, Richmond
  • 9945 Windfern Road near Sam Houston Race Park
  • 1261 Brittmoore Road, just north of Interstate 10 (newest location)

Why the great deal? The Ground Up is changing the bags for their high-quality soil in 2018, and they have a lot remaining with the old “Beyond Organic” label.  So, they’re having a “Farewell Sale” you should take advantage of.  All cubic-foot bags with the Beyond Organic label are just $5 each!

Now, the deal doesn’t include their “Vegan Compost.” They are changing the label for that product, too, but they only have very few bags left, and they’re going at the regular price of $10.99.  I intend for next week’s post to cover why a price like that for a bag of high-quality compost - or a cubic yard of it for $60 - is by far the best investment you could make for Houston-area gardening. 

 Meanwhile, get your $5 bags of The Ground Up Beyond Organic Soils while supplies last!
