How to use wool pellets

Wool pellets are an easy and natural way to nourish your soil. To get optimum results, use an application rate of 2-5% of the soil volume. That equates to 1/2 cup per gallon of soil or 1 pound per 10 sq. ft.

When potting or repotting, mix in 1/2 cup to 1 cup of wool pellets per gallon of soil. Once mixed in, rehydrate your soil and then plant.

If you don’t want to repot, spread 1/2 cup of wool pellets per gallon of soil on top of the soil and gently press the wool pellets into the soil about 1" to 2" deep to get them around the roots.

We've created a table that we send out with every order of wool pellets. This guideline provides you with how many wool pellets you'll need based on common pot sizes. You can check out the table below:

At the beginning of the season, mix wool pellets in with your soil at a rate of 1 pound per 10 sq.ft.

You can also sprinkle in 1/4 cup of wool pellets (about a handful) into the hole when you’re transplanting your plants.

If you'd like to use wool pellets as a slug repellent, mulch a radius of 6 inches around your tasty plant, and water. This will create a mat of wool that slugs hate to crawl over!

If you want to use wool pellets as part of your seed starting mix, please see our blog all about it!

Please don't hesitate to reach out via email if you have any more questions or you can check out our FAQs page. Our wool pellets are available for purchase online, we can ship anywhere in the US. And if you're in the area, we'll be at these markets this spring in Nebraska!

Happy planting!
