The Garden Center is getting stocked up here and I wandered around and looked at the new offerings, right next to the Miracle No potting mix was a pallet of peat based organic starter with worm castings.

Cost was $6.49 for 1 cu ft so to compare to a bale of pro-mix

 

3.8 cu ft Pro Mix here is $35.00

 

3.8 x 6.49 = $24.66 per 3.8 cu ft

 

$35.00 / $6.49 = 5.4 gallons

 

So first, it is less than pro mix, but needs perlite imho to loosen the mix, still cost effective to ammend and less than Pro-mix

 

But at this point, it is really a great starter for my garden, will be using this for our seeds and will probably put some cannabis in to see how it works in veg.

one thing id watch is the sedge thats in it we have a similar product up here its called plants in pots ive used it but its very unpredictable as sledge is hard it seems for them to give a nutrient breakdown as its sledge harvested from dried sloughs.each time its of a different composition making it hard really to get a handle on a feeding program as each bag varies!!!!!!!

I Don't Recall If The Black Gold {All Organic-Which This Company No Longer Makes} Potting Soil Was

 

Without Everything You Have Right Here And At 1/3 Of The Price For A 2 Cu Ft. Bag. This Company Back 

 

Either In The Late 70's Or Early 80's-Mid 80's Was An Excellent Product. We Would Buy Entire Pallets Each Month.

 

They Have Changed Hands From Being A Mostly PNW Company To A National One. They Used To Have 2 Types Of Black Gold.

 

One As Said Was 'All Organic' And The Other I Think Was Called 'Natural.' The Latter Potting Soil Would 'Pan' The Water Right Off

 

To The Sides. An Easy Fix To This Prob, But Since They Were A Buck Cheaper A Bag We Stuck With The Better Black Gold 'All Organic'...

 

Along With Beefing This Soil Up With Extra Bulk Nutes, Along With Adding In More Perlite. A Bit Of Sand And Additional Moss If Needed To

 

Stretch The Mix.

 

We Have A Guy Here In Town Who Makes Up A Mix Like This One Pete. He's Owns 2 American Ag Stores {For Grow Equipment.}

 

Nice Soil I Hear... But Sadly, We Found Out The Dude's A Snitch. Thank God We Always Paid With Cash And Closed Our Commercial

 

Acct. Prior To Me Being Busted. Years Later, I Got To Talking To This Owner And He Actually {Believe This Or Not} Told Me Everything...

 

Get This--->  ALL Over The Phone This Dude Confesses To Me As Though I Was His Priest Granting Him Absolution.

 

How The Cops Set Up Customers And Having Police Cadets Jotting Down Lic. Plates To Turn Into The Heat Daily. I Did Nothing Compared To This Rat

 

And Figure It's His Karma Not Mine.The Scum Eventually Got Me. 'Operation: 'Green Thumb.' Just Think What A Field Day I Could Have With This Creep...

 

Anyway... Sorry, A Bit Hyper And Oh Lord... How Am I Ever Going To Make It Through This Day ? Peace Be With You All, BW


Its sledge harvested from dried sloughs.each time its of a different composition making it hard really to get a handle on a feeding program as each bag varies!!!"

 

Oh AT I'll Bet... Hard To Get A Steady Read On Each Bag WOOOW ! Good Point-Thanks Buddy-Take Care-Have A Good Day My Friend, Peace, BW
