5 of the Best Certified Organic Potting Soils - OMRI Listed
There are a lot of different types and brands of soil out there, and trust me, I’ve been in your shoes - it’s overwhelming. I’ve been a plant mama for a few years now, and since my background is in environmental, the scientist inside of me had to know exactly what was in the soil I was buying. I wanted to make sure I wasn’t buying soil that was full of chemicals or additives, especially for my veggie garden.
I wanted to know if the soil that claims to be “natural and organic” is really certified organic?
So, I did some research. It’s all about the labeling when you’re searching for ‘good’ soil. The most important cert to look for on a soil bag is “OMRI listed”. You have look around because each brand has the label in different places on the bag.
