The average delivery fee for 9 to 20 cubic yards, is $200. The maximum load per order is 20 cubic yards.  If you would like more than that you would need to make a separate order. If your zipcode is located outside of our regular delivery area, you are welcome to reach out for a specialized quote- info@whitwamorganics.com 

     If you would like to order additional items other than soil, please place separate orders. The soil comes from a separate location. If you put everything on one order, the system will just compound shipping costs, and not give you other shipping options for the other items (Pickup, etc).

     1.5 cuft bags are also available. There is a toggle to go between buying by the cubic yard, and buying by the bag, on the product page. We fill soil bag orders on Wednesday mornings. Orders for bagged soil that come in after 4pm on Tuesday, will be filled the following week (Wednesday).

      It takes 18) 1.5 cubic foot bags to make one cubic yard. Orders for bagged soil, can be picked up. If you would like to order more than 18 bags, it is recommended that you consider a bulk soil order for delivery. 

      Get our specially blended bulk garden soil, delivered right to your driveway, or pick up small quantities of bagged soil from our shop (online orders only). One cubic yard equals 27 cubic feet. The box store's bagged garden soil is in 1 or 1.5 cubic foot bags, and costs about $8.00 to $18.00. That means 1 cubic yard of bagged soil from The Big Box store will cost you about $200-$350. Please consider that if the delivery fee seems too high. You are still saving money.  Please understand that we do not make money on the delivery fee. This is a straight through cost to our delivery driver. Buy in bulk, not only for a superior product with a huge savings, but for a greater convenience as well. The more you buy, the more you will save. If you go to check out, and do not have a shipping option then we do not service your area. Please call 813-803-0024 if you have any questions

DIRECTIONS FOR USE FOR ALL NEW PLANTINGS OF SEEDS AND PLANTS

(Secret Formula for raised beds)
-Per 32sqft-

Before planting

add 3lbs of 5-6-6 and

1.5lbs of 12-0-0 

to our 50/50 Compost/Garden Soil, raised bed mix. Mix thoroughly, vertically into the top 3-4 inches. 

If the soil is like giant oak logs in a fire, then these granular fertilizers are like the small sticks and logs to your fire.

Immediately after planting,

pour over your bed using 1-2 gallons of water

4oz of Compost Plus,

2oz of Micros Plus, and

4oz of Capacity Plus.

These liquids, are like the paper to your fire. 

Follow up feedings -post-planting-

    For the first few weeks after planting, use just the Compost Plus.

If feeding 1 time per week, apply 4oz per 32sqft in 1-2 gallons of water. I use 2 gallons because I get a more even spread. Use however much water you can comfortably spread the product out in 32sqft.

If feeding 2x per week then 2oz per feeding, and if feeding 4x per week, then 1oz. 

Essentially, use the same amount of product per 32sqft, per week. More dilute more often is definitely better, but I know we all have schedules. Do this, for the first 2 to 4 weeks after planting. You will know when to stop.

Use Compost Plus again during the growing season, if fast growth is what you need from your plants.

Follow up -during the season-

Every 1 to 2 months, apply Micros Plus and Capacity Plus with 1-2 gallons of water.  If applying every 2 months then 2oz and 4oz respectively. If applying every month, then go at half the rate. Kind of like with the Compost Plus.

Re-apply 1/8 to 1/4 of the original application of 5-6-6 (no 12-0-0) every 45 to 90 days or as needed until the end of the growing cycle.

Our aim is to fulfill your order as quickly as possible. While most orders are processed within 7 days, we understand that sometimes it may take longer. Please note that expedited shipping options like Next Day Air or 2nd Day Air only affect the transit time once your order leaves our facility, not the preparation time.

Pickup Orders
Pickup orders are typically ready within 2-4 days. If you require it sooner, please let us know, and we will do our best to accommodate you. For bagged soil pickup orders, please refer to the details below. Once your pickup order is ready, we will contact you (usually by text) to schedule a 2-hour pickup appointment window. Pickup times are available 7 days a week, between 7 am and 9 pm. Your order will be placed under the brown tent in front of our location at 7409 N Highland Ave Tampa, FL 33604, for easy pickup.

Live Plants
For out-of-state orders, we ship on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. Florida orders are shipped on Mondays or Tuesdays. If you place an out-of-state order on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, it will likely be shipped the following Tuesday or Wednesday. Florida orders placed on Sunday or Monday may be shipped the following week. We schedule shipments this way to ensure that live plants don't travel over the weekend, minimizing any potential damage.

Seed Orders
Our seed packets are prepared over the weekend. Orders consisting only of seeds are shipped on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Bulk Soil
After you place your order, we will contact you to arrange the soil delivery. Please note that our trailer or dump truck is large and heavy, with a limited turning radius. We cannot be held responsible for any damage within 1.5 ft of the edge of the driveway or the designated delivery area. If there are plants, grass, artificial turf, sprinkler heads, or any other items within 1.5 ft of the edge, they may be damaged. We are not liable for any damage unless it is due to gross driver negligence. Driveway surfaces (concrete, shell, pavers, turf, etc.) and anything within 1.5 ft of the drive may experience cracking, splitting, breaking, depressions, tracks, etc. Please be aware that large item deliveries carry inherent risks. If the driver determines that it is unsafe to dump the soil in your desired location, they will either choose a safe alternative or the soil will not be delivered, but the delivery fee will still apply.

Bagged Soil
We fill bagged soil orders every Wednesday. If your order is placed after 4 pm on Tuesday, it will be filled on the following Wednesday. Once your bags of soil are ready, we will follow the regular pickup protocol mentioned above.
