PRO-MIX® Compressed Premium Moisture Potting Mix
« on: October 03, 2022, 06:38:54 pm »
Has anyone used this Pro-Mix product in their Earthbox? Looks like they just compress 2 cf of Pro-Mix into A 1 CF package, local Menards has it on sale 1/3 off.

Sphagnum peat moss (80-90% by volume)
Coir
Perlite
Ground Limestone (for pH adjustment)
Wetting agent
Mycorrhizae

In my locality, I can't find anything that doesn't have all the things we're not supposed to have in the mix, so I make my own with (roughly) 80% Canadian peat, 10% perlite and 10% vermiculite.   Kind of backbreaking for me, but it seems to be working well enough so far.

Sounds like you got a bargain, hope it works well for you.

Professional growing mixes are available at all independent garden centers across the country. These will be sphagnum peat or coir based and will work great in our EarthBoxes.
Why Google, when you have me?
