POTTING MIX TEST
6th March 2013 06:14pm
Have you ever had pot plants die on you? You pot them up carefully, but they fail to thrive?
Well, the reason may be that your potting mix was no good. Burke’s Backyard has just tested 30 different bags of potting mix from several states in Australia: some were good, some were very very good and some were not so good. In fact some were bad enough to kill plants.
On page 73 of the final March edition of the Burke’s Backyard magazine, soil scientist Kevin Handreck and I go through the results. Some potting mixes performed well above expectations and some of these good performers were quite cheap to buy.
So, it may not be your fault if your pot plants are dying. Get the March edition of the Burke’s Backyard magazine (with the dead gnome on the cover) to find out which brands are best. On sale now.
