I need help buying a super soil. Id coast of Maine growers mix any good?

I am about to buy some soil. I’ve been doing research on a super soil. Does anyone have any thoughts on what I should use. I was trying to grow organic. I was going to get some coast of Maine. I didn’t want to build my own I want to buy some like coast of Maine that has everything in it already.

unless of course local will break the bank :wink:

inside I use Jack’s Classic 20-20-20 and 10-30-20 and ProMix BX/HP

whichever the wholesale is giving a deal :slight_smile:

outside I have been building the soil in my garden since 1995 here when I bought the

place started with rocks,clay and hardpan

I have had at the least 3 horses and fowl on the place since then so my soil

is getting outstanding

plants love the ground

Try putting a fish under your plants. When you plant them.

Pretty much everything you’d mix up to make your own ‘living’ soil you can brew in a tea and feed to the plants/soil.
I’ve always ran with Ocean Forrest. If I’m trying to save $ Happy Frog.

They sell mixes too but I find em too expensive.

In your case I would use Promix or another peatmix, but buy a good quality one, and add 30% worm castings. Amend with Gaia Green dry amendments :+1: and you’ll use the dry amendments for top feedings every 2-3 weeks as well. Working very well and it’s dead easy, no work.

I know, it’s not cheap. But it’s all getting expensive I guess… For me it’s worth paying a little extra for the quality stuff, unless you like fighting bugs & critters!

yes indeed :slight_smile:

last year the wholesaler did not have ProMix when I needed some

so he said I have Lambert AP which is just like ProMix BX

was cheaper and like growing in a bale of peat moss from Home Depot

turned acidic by the fourth watering

I have used ProMix since 1982 and will keep using it inside

outside I have Black Gold :wink:
