Potting Ingredience

Post by paulh on 20th February 2013, 00:28

Peoples, after getting computer RSI trying to find a good recipe I have come up with this mixture. I certainly need the benefit of everyones experience.

medium grade jarrah etc... not pine
washed coarse sand
coir peat brick
cow manure
loam
1/2 cup worm castings
1/2 cup epsum salts
slow release fertiliser
blood & bone
seasol

One question is... how many parts would I use of each.. if indeed the above stuff is going to be good for roses...

lets see....
the jarrah will suck the nitrogen out of the soil to help it break down.. a new plant does not want fertilizer till it is established as it will burn.....

Paul, if it was me, I would take a trip up to Melvilles and get a few bags of his specially made up rose potting mix...can't go wrong there with his special blend.....
