About Me Master Gardener
This is a wonderful product, very useful for any type of garden, from native flowers and shrubs to other plants. In addition, High Country Gardens' David Salman always provides good instructions for how and when to apply this.
from New Mexico
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!

Fantastic Yum Yum
from Northern New Hampshire
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!

I sprinkled this into numerous new flower beds last fall. All the beds are full of worms and my flowers are thriving this spring. It's a great product.

used this before planting dogtuff grass in central Arizona. Must be good stuff because both the grass plugs and the overseeded rye are thriving!

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.

just started using yum yum mix
from Denver, Co.
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.

Wonderfully balanced fertilizer!
I used this fertilizer to amend the soil in my yard before seeding new grass. It was recommended by High Country Gardens and has been a wonderfully balanced fertilizer to help our grass get a good start.
Help revive overly tired soil!
By Danny & Alisha
from Millcreek, UT
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.

Used this mix for years and my plants LOVE IT.
from Pueblo West, CO
I use it with all of my new plants. It's easy to use and with it being organic I don't have to worry about it burning my plants. I don't plant anything without it.
By Sunflower Nancy
from Edgewood, NM
Product was recommended by two garden clubs I belong to. Easy to mix in when planting, and easy to use when revitalizing perennials.
Yum Yum Mix Works For Me
from Huntington Beach, CA
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.
from Santa Fe, NM
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."
from Estes Park, CO
I use this product on flower and vegetable plants. Great for getting new plants started and maintaining periennials. I always keep a supply on hand.
Yum Yum Mix Is Yummy!
from Los Alamos, NM
I've used Yum Yum Mix for several years now and higly recommend it. I've used it on my flowers, lawn, shrubs and trees and everything just thrives. Yum Yum Mix is so yummy for those plants!
