I want to make my own potting soil
This is what I have in bulk; peat moss, pumice, organic compost starter/soil amendment (I forget the exact name right now) by Gardner & Bloome, Dr. Earth Oranic 7 complete fertilizer, sm. amount of perlite, chicken manure, alfalfa and sand. I was hoping to use the compost starter and amend that but when I opened it for the first time it just felt too woody to me. I know it has these mycorrhizae and other good stuff but it didn't seem like it was the right thing to start adding into. Maybe I'm so used to a clay type of dirt that I'm off track here but what else do I need?,,,No commercial potting mixes or super soil for me please,,unless they are gardner & bloome,,,maybe I just bought the wrong mix? I need it in bulk so when I saw the 3 cu ft block for this great price from the county farm supply I just grabbed them.
What do I need to get now? Thx.
