Back to Nature Cotton Burr Compost/Top Dressing and Mulch is made from 100% cotton burrs, a by-product of the ginning process.  Mixing it into the soil, regardless of the type soil or the soil conditions, can rejuvenate soils that are low in organic matter, lighten heavy soils, and aid in moisture retention.

Back to Nature Cotton Burr Compost is also an excellent top dressing and mulch.


Mulching:   Spread 1" to 3" deep around the base of trees, shrubs, and plants.  Mulch should be kept away from the stems of tender seedlings, and a few inches from the trunks of trees and shrubs.

Flower beds and vegetable gardens:   Spread 2"-3" deep over area to be planted and till in to a depth of 6"-8", or lightly rake the product into the top 2" soil.  If area has already been planted, spread 1/2" to 1" over soil around plants.  Water in thoroughly after application.

Trees and shrubs:   Apply 1" layer from trunk to drip line and water in.  Keep a few inches clearance from trunk to start of compost.

Cotton burr compost performs best when mixed with the soil.  Back to Nature does not recommend using this product straight or in soil-less mixes.  This product contains NO chemicals, insects, weeds, or harmful pathogens.  Tannins in compost may stain concrete.
