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.
if you most buy try to buy something local as you can
save yourself the added shipping cost
unless of course local will break the bank
where you located? building soil in January in upstate New York would be a bit hard for me
but come April/May
all the best
Love Build a soil. I love watching their videos. It’s like my morning coffee lol. @MrMonkey420
What soil recipe do you use. Or are you synthetic nutrients? @dequilo
inside I use Jack’s Classic 20-20-20 and 10-30-20 and ProMix BX/HP
whichever the wholesale is giving a deal
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.
I didn’t want to build my own I’m on a budget so I’m trying to get some with everything already mixed
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 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.
is not cheap anymore 3.8 cuft here is over 50 dollars US
Yeah well. Sell some bud ey
not I too much like 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!
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
