Help with 3:2:1 mix - First timer
I have made a big container (4' x 3'6", height 3') This being my first time, I have bunch of questions .. I am creating multiple threads with questions on each different topic.
This thread is about the mix I will be using. I am following the Raybo guide for the 3:2:1 mix.
For the potting mix I am looking at Fafard Growing Mix No.2 or Premier pro-mix BX. from here They come in compressed bales - 3.6cu ft. So is this volume after I open the bale up or is it the compressed volume? And if its compressed, what would it be after I open up the bag?
Any recommendations between these two?
I have already bought coarse vermiculite. Can I use that instead of perlite?
Fertilizer - One fertilizer tube provides fert for two tomato plants? So in my big container, I can make a foot long tube of 3" diameter between two tomato plants to get the same effect?
Thank you very much
