How do you mix your potting mix?

7 years ago

I tried to search this subject, but it is a difficult one to pinpoint and actually find what you are looking for.

What I want to know is what are your methods for making sure your homemade potting mix is mixed thoroughly?

I made some, Approx 20 quarts, and tried to mix it in a large black garbage sack. It didn't work very well. When I removed some of it and added hot water, it smells like there is too much bonemeal in the portion that I have. Years ago when I was a member of a wonderful club we mixed ours using and old cement mixer that one of the members owned.

Btw, I ordered Espoma peat, perlite and vermiculite off of Amazon. The quality is great. The perlite and vermiculite both are of a good size, not much dust at all.
