Hi Gardencraze!

Might you mean Al's (Gritty) Mix? If so, there are tons of links in many different forums. See link to Search below.

Al's Gritty mix: 1-1-1

Equal parts by volume of:

pine or fir bark in 1/8-1/4" size

Screened Turface (may substitute calcined DE, such as NAPA floor dry)

Gran-I-Grit (crushed granite in grower size or #2 cherrystone)


Here's the link:

Al's (Tapla) 5-1-1 Mix

5 parts pine bark fines
1 part sphagnum peat
1-2 parts perlite
garden lime
controlled release fertilizer (not really necessary)
a micro-nutrient source (seaweed emulsion, Earthjuice, Micro-max, STEM, etc,)
