Agromend is a soil amendment specifically designed for clay soils. It helps keep heavy clay soils loose and workable, adds organic matter, is long lasting, helps get plants established and improves soil structure.

For larger plants, mix 60% of the native clay soil and 40% of the AGROMEND and use as a backfill mix for all planting areas of the landscape.
