How often should I use Good Dirt Plant Food?

ANSWER: As often as you like!

It is true — you can apply our Plant Food each time you water your plants.

Why? Our products are not salt or petroleum based. Too much salt can cause plant drought stress or root burn.

Since we don’t base our products in salt or petroleum, you can feed your plants year round, as often as you like, and you will not have a build up of salts!


Pro Tip:

Feed your plants with our Plant Food all through the winter. When plants are dormant, they’re not dead! They’ll soak up those nutrients during the cold, sleepy winter months and then burst to life come spring.

How do I use Good Dirt’s Plant Food?

Our concentrated formula is easy to mix and goes a long way — there are 60 capfuls are in our 15oz product.  Picture this: if you mixed the whole 15oz Plant Food container at once, you’d be making more feeding solution than your bathtub can even hold! Plus, we’ve done the math for you — that’s just $0.28/gallon.

Using our Plant Food is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

Step 1: Mix the Plant Food Concentrate with Water

  • Outdoors: Mix 3 capfuls of our Plant Food into 1 gallon of water
  • Indoors: Mix 1 capful of our Plant Food into 1 gallon of water

Step 2: Water Your Plants

  • Note: Be kind to your plants and only water plants when necessary. If the soil feels dry to the touch, your plant is probably getting thirsty. Remember to drain any excess water caught in a saucer.

Step 3: Watch Your Plants Thrive

  • Easy, efficient and effective… Naturally! Be sure to make a fresh solution of Good Dirt Plant Food + Water every time you feed.

Does your Plant Food expire?

Good Dirt Plant Food has a five year shelf life. We recommend making a new solution each time you feed your plants. If you have left over plant food after mixing it with water, we recommend using all that you mixed, as it can be fed to your lawn, shrubs, or anything that grows.

How can we help?

Yes! All our products are chemical-free, non-GMO, vegan, and sustainably produced. Safe to use near kids and pets, safe to use on edible plants, even safe if you have nut allergies.

BogBits® are our proprietary recycled by-product of sustainably harvested peat moss. It provides the permanent porosity that plants need to breathe and roots to thrive.

On a trip to Canada, our founders encountered a naturally occurring phenomenon found in peat moss bogs — ‘sticks’ that could be broken down into a fiber for a new type of potting mix. A kind of mix that would provide a better balance of air space and water retention; a better home for roots to grow and form.

Good Dirt® worked with a team to develop their own special recipe using this new magical ingredient, and BogBits was born.

BogBits are comprised of partially petrified peat from Canadian peat bogs. In years past, this by-product of peat moss harvest would have simply been discarded, or used to pave peat bog access roads.

Now, these BogBits have allowed us to create a rich, fluffy Soil Conditioner and Potting Mix with porosity unlike anything on the market.

Yes, all our products are vegan and plant based. We do not add any animal byproducts to any soil mixes or plant nutrition.

Many companies that add animal byproducts to their mixes or fertilizers are trying to balance the nutrients for plants. However, our Good Dirt Plant Food (included in our potting mixes, as well as sold separately for plant nutrition) does not need these ingredients. Our products are made from plants, for plants. The base of our plant food is derived from oilseed extract and contains everything Nature puts into a seed to reproduce the species. The natural oilseed extract contains NPK, trace elements, and all the organic compounds found in a seed, including all the essential plant amino acids.

Our soil mix recipes do not contain any nuts or peanuts that may potentially be harmful to gardeners with allergies, nor do our facilities process products that include nuts or peanuts. that may potentially be harmful to gardeners with allergies, nor do our facilities process products that include nuts or peanuts.

Our Plant Food is derived from a seed (oil seed to be specific) and contains all the nutrients a seed needs to germinate – for that reason it is great for ALL plants

It is made from plants, for plants. It contains all the compounds, amino acids, and trace elements a seed needs to germinate and all plants to thrive. The recipe is then enhanced with NPK 10-4-3 (which is not salt-based) so it won’t cause roots and leaves to burn.
