Results of laboratory testing of organic soil-cement samples are presented in the paper. The research program continues on the authors previously reported experiences with cement - organic soil sample testing. Over 150 compression tests have been carried out altogether. Several samples were cured for over 3 months before they were tested. Several factors, such as: the large amount of the pieces under test, long observation time, carrying out the tests in complex cycles of loading and the possibility of continuous registering the loads and deformation in the axial direction – made it possible to control numerous interdependencies, some of which have been presented in this work. Compressive strength and elastic modulus of cubic samples were examined. Samples were mixed and stored in laboratory conditions. The results clearly point to the fact that designing the DSM dry columns in the organic soil may be linked with a considerable risk and needs special precautions. During in situ mixing, the organic material surrounded by sand layers surely mixes with one another in certain areas. However, it has not been examined and it is difficult to assume such mixing already at the designing stage.
