Hey Al, a question for you!?
I was at the Fafard grave yard the other day and they have pallets upon pallets of the 'nursery mix' which a few of my friends want to try and one bought for me.
Here's the thing. The guy there told us it was 80% pine bark, 10% peat, and 10% perlite.
Well upon looking at the bag ingredients myself this am, it says it is comprised of 80% pine bark and the rest being peat, NO perlite.
Now my friends are asking me, including myself, how much perlite do I/they have to add to make it comprable to the 5.1.1 mix to let's say, 5 parts 'nursery mix'? Do we have to strain the prelite of the dust too?
Thanks in advance!:-)
