Mama's Fine Potting Mix

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Start with 1 big bag bark-based or peat-based potting soil/planting mix.

Dump all of it into a wheelbarrow & use the empty bag to measure: 


§              ½ bag ground bark or leaf mold                                

§              ½ bag compost  (yours or store bought) and

§              ½ bag manure - if pots will be outdoors all year   

§              ¼ bag sharp sand (‘play’ sand is ok)

§              1 cup granular garden fertilizer if potting soil has none

§              1 cup garden lime (not hydrated)

§ Mix all ingredients together well.
