Horticultural Growing Media

To protect consumers and maintain consistency in the potting soil industry, the Georgia Department of Agriculture has adopted regulations concerning labeling and soil media composition.  It is our responsibility to register and approve potting soils and all label information, including the base material, percentage of peat, bark, and other contents.  If you are interested in selling media in Georgia, please contact our division for a registration packet.
