            I put Yum Yum down last fall, with compost, and my garden was brilliant with flowers this year. I live in New Mexico, high desert, and my soil is rather poor. Dry, sandy, low in nutrients. The Yum Yum made all the difference, I'm buying another big bag today!

              I used Yum Yum Mix in Albuquerque for all my gardens and found it indispensable.
              Then I moved to New Hampshire. The soil was pretty lifeless. I ordered yum yum and have abundant growth everywhere I used it!

                        Our sandy coastal soil in the Southeast produces puny plants and flowers. I started using the Yum Yum Mix I discovered in the high desert of New Mexico and have seen quite an improvement since first application last fall. It was a go-to product in the Southwest, so I'm thrilled that it's working its wonders here as well.

                              I just planted 4 of the Preplanned gardens plus additional plants from HCG. I felt I needed to use the yum yum mix to help the plants along. It was easy to apply and hopefully will work wonders. I just got the plants in the ground last week, we have had late Colorado Spring snows, so fingers crossed, it will be a miracle worker.

                                      Comments about High Country Gardens Yum Yum Mix:

                                      We used about 1/4 cup per hole dug for our new plants from High Country Gardens along with some of our own compost. So far the plants seem to be adjusting well (even though temps skyrocketed to the upper 90's and even 100's the week after they planted.) The bed we planted housed a huge juniper bush for more than 50 years and the soil seemed very depleted I am hopeful that the yum yum mix will provide what our soil is lacking.

                                          The plants that I used the Yum Yum mix are growing bigger and better than the one that I had previously planted. What a great product for planting.

                                            Product was recommended by two garden clubs I belong to. Easy to mix in when planting, and easy to use when revitalizing perennials.

                                              I use Yum Yum mix mixed with compost to fertilize my drought tolerant lawn, (UC Verde Buffalo Grass). I'm happy with the results as the Yum Yum mix doesn't burn the grass and isn't as strong smelling as other fertilizers.

                                                  I've been using this for years; all transplants, grass, flower beds in the spring, etc. It's amazing! Doesn't burn the plant if you over do it a little. Even used it when I planted a fairly large Ash tree. We've dubbed it "steroids for plants."

                                                      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                                                      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                                                      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                                                      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
