Has anyone used there own home made compost for planting annuals in pots and baskets?
I have just potted up a trailing fuchsia basket, which I will keep in my greenhouse until it's ready to go out. I used my own home made compost mixed with perlite, some blood fish and bone, some long lasting feeding pellets and some water retaining gel granules. Do you think it will work or do they really need shop bought compost?
I have bought some compost from B&Q but to be honest, my own compost smells sweeter that the B&Q compost, which smells a bit sour. I have about 12 baskets around the house each year and I have only ever used grobag compost but I am anxious to use my own compost as much as possible.
I would value other gardeners experiences on the matter.
