Westcroft's Greenleaf Compound

Westcroft's Greenleaf Compound is made from a formula invented by Mr. Ernest N. Stanton, founder of Westcroft Gardens.  He was a pioneer grower of Azaleas and Rhododendrons and other acid soil plants in southeastern Michigan. During the 1930s he began creating his own hybrid Azaleas and Rhododendrons and found that they were not thriving, so he started experimenting with soil amendments. After many years of testing, by 1949 Westcroft's Greenleaf Compound was perfected and available for sale.

Most soils in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions are neutral or alkaline, which is not suitable for growing this valuable group of plants.  The ground is often heavy clay loam and poorly aerated.  For this reason proper bed preparation is necessary.  Using Westcroft's Greenleaf Compound helps in the proper soil preparation for azaleas and rhododendrons and its continued use as a soil conditioner is very important in maintaining the proper acidity in the plant beds.

Over the years many landscapers and yard maintenance companies have used Greenleaf Compound with excellent results. 

Westcroft's Greenleaf Compound is specially recommended for: Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Most Wildflowers, Flowering Dogwood, Holly, Japanese Maple, Spruce, Magnolia, Pachysandra, Ferns, Blueberries, Mt. Laurel, Boxwood, Andromeda, Taxus-Yews, Pine, Fir, Vinca Minor, Hydrangea, Roses and more...

Easy to Use

BED PREPARATION-- If preparing a bed for azaleas, rhododendrons, or any other acid soil loving plants, Greenleaf Compound may be used in the preparation of the bed.  Unlike other acid soil products that are granular, Greenleaf Compound's base is peat moss and humus making it more cost effective to amend your soil.  Depending on soil quality, thoroughly mix with 2 to 4 pounds of Greenleaf Compound for every square yard of the area of the bed.

SOIL CONDITIONER-- To maintain healthy plants, Greenleaf Compound should be applied three times a year; once before the plant blooms, once after the blooms and once early in the fall.  Spread two pounds per square yard between and around the plants.  Water thoroughly.

10lb. Bag: $12.99
25lb. Bag: $19.99
50lb. Bag: $29.99
