E.B. Stone Organic Soils and Conditioners
E.B. Stone is a family owned business started in 1916.
E.B. Stone created a fertilizer that made his fruit crops the
talk of other San Jose CA farmers. In time, he created superb
fertilizers as well as soil conditioners, for flowers, fruit
trees and plant material of many varieties. When he retired in
1979, he sold his family business to the Crandall's, another
family dedicated to creating the best fertilizer and amendments.
the years, horticulturists at E.B. Stone perfected some of those
original formulas. The result is a new generation of 21st century
fertilizers, soils for indoor use, all natural pest controls
and soil amendments for the garden and landscape. The addition
of mycorrhizae and
beneficial soil microbes better insure that our customers have
the greatest success when gardening.
proof of their efforts is when you see what happens in your own
