Help! Am I using the right soil?
Hi all (I'm a newbie here so please forgive me if I'm asking a stupid question).
We just built two 3.5 x 3.5 raised beds and I sent my husband to pick up soil from a place called Sloat here in SF. He came back with their potting soil (ingredients: fir bark, peat moss, horticultural sand, mushroom compost) and he's emptied most of the bags into the raised beds already. Is this stuff similar to Mel's mix? What should I add to it to make it better? Thanks for your input. I'm looking forward to learning from all of you.
