Al Gritty Mix and Basic Soil Mix

14 years ago

Could one ad more bark to the Gritty Mix? and still have the same basic effect? I made both mixes and I like the amount of bark ( 5 parts) in the Basic Mix.

How much epsom salts or lime should I add to the mix - if I made about 30 gals (I filled a large storage tub) Is it added to the soil or disolved in the water when fertilized.

I assume that the small quantiy of lime wont have a major effect on the pH?

Part of the explanation about the need for this soil mix is the discussion about gases in the soil. Could you explain more about theses gasses? Are they from the roots or the soil?

Thanks Mike
