Al's Gritty Mix and the 5-1-1 are generally useful for woody plants or plants that will be grown for a while in the same container.
I'm looking for a growing medium other than just plain dirt that will drain well and isn't too expensive to either buy or make that I can use for my growing enclosure. I will be growing vegetables so hopefully something that can come off roots easily.
My watering schedule will have a weak fertilizer solution every time I water so SOME moisture retention would be nice.
I recently made Al's Gritty Mix for my Tarocco Tree and Grape Vine and it wasn't cheap or easy to make.
Thank you for all suggestions and help.
