Al's Gritty 5.1.1 or 1.1.1. Which is best for 10b zone

10 years ago

Hi I had a two beginner question regarding Al�s 5.1.1. and 1.1.1. gritty mix. I bough all the supplies for both mixes and I�m excited and ready to mix all the ingredients.

Question 1 . When I buy a plant from a local nursery and I�m ready to re -pot it on Al�s mix how much soil do I leave from the original container? Do I have to add more garden soil since most of these mixes contain none?

Question 2. I live in south Florida zone 10b Which mix is better for outdoor container usually large to middle size pots for flowering plants, tree's , shrubs, and vines 5.1.1 or 1.1.1. mix? Thanks in advance for the help
