Soil or compost in New garden boxes

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 18:29

Depending on your top soil, a 50/50 mix + FBB would be Ideal. Make sure to line your boxes with permeable membrane. ( black compost bags will do with holes in)

Sounds like you knew what you where doing from your first post. Drainage is essential and so is moisture retention. It's a hard medium to find.

I would rather consider it as a herb than a weed.

It's great for cold and flu. Think of it as a herbal sunflower. (Im sure it is related)

I would plant them out if they are not too used to the heat. Spend a period and harden them off. Then plant out.

(please ask if you need info on hardening off)

Compost composition review

Vermicompost (worm compost) is Not your normal compost used to plant things with. Drywsdad. It has never been the intention to use this stuff neat. It is a soil rejuvenator and rich source of bacteria and minerals that helps plants to prosper and improve their immune system against the environment and pests. It should never be used neat. 

Worm composting in the right conditions is the fastest composting you can get. 

Hope this helpshttp://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/vermicomposting-for-begginers/255110.html

Thanks Redwing.

Its the only thing to get the nutrients back in the soil and it is sadly lacking these days. Unfortunately.
