Soil mix for potting up?
I posted this on Market Gardening, but thought someone here might have more experience with these brands.
I've got tomatoes and peppers that need to be potted up ASAP - started a month ago in 50 (and one 72) cell flats, I've got roots coming out the bottoms!
I bought a bale (3.8cf) of Fafard Mix #2 (all they had besides container mix - which was half the price for 1/4 the size!) plus 2cf of Coast of Maine Penobscot blend (compost and peat moss). Any experience with Fafard? How much (if any) CoM blend to add? These are just for potting up, plan to plant out in app 1 month.
Some of the seedlings will likely be potted into slightly larger containers now for sale at market in June, so may be in this mix more like 2 months, but I don't expect them to stay in 1/2 gal pots the entire season - buyers will have to put in 5 gal containers with their own mix if they want to keep them.
