A friend decided to try the Charcoal Green® Potting Mix with his spring bedding plants after seeing how it helped grow record Giant Pumpkins. For comparison he also planted some flowers in the leading national brand of potting mix. Here are a few backyard pictures he sent us.
Charcoal Gardens was purchased in March 2013 initially as a recreational property. The property had never been lived on and was essentially open range for cattle. We spent the first year clearing away deadfall along Deep Creek, burning, gathering piles and piles of cow pies, building fence, and raking more piles and piles of Cottonwood leaves in the fall.
Hi, I grow giant pumpkins and grew this pumpkin shown in the attached picture. It will be officially weighed on Oct. 3rd. [weighed in at 1173lbs] I am happy to say I believe your product [Charcoal Green® BIOCHAR PLUS] helped play an important part in helping me to achieve a bigger pumpkin this year.
