MOO Potting Mix

Need potting mix, but turned off by the price of good ones and the quality of the cheaper mixes?

Don't be tempted to use cheaper commercial potting mix. It may be cheap but it will settle down and compact the soil, making it harder for your plants to put down roots and for water to penetrate.

Solve the problem by making your own by combining equal parts peat moss, vermiculite (or perlite) and compost (preferably your own). This will give you a lightweight, nutrient-rich mix that drains well and doesn't dry out quickly, making it ideal for pots and grow bags as well as for topping up raised beds.
