Home made potting medium for Tomatoes in Earthboxes
After a failure to grow Tomatoes in the garden last year (critters ate everything), I decided to try Earthboxes. I have some patio space and deer, rabbits, and squirrels seem to not like to have their breakfast too close to the home.
I ordered a couple of Earthbox kits. The kits include Coir - enough to fill the entire container. I think that using just Coir alone would be too lean for tomatoes...
Here what I have:
Fine pine bark mulch
Organic garden soil
Coir (coconut?) fiber that came with Earthboxes
Do you think I can mix these ingredients to get a good potting medium? If so, what proportions I should use? Should I add aspirin tablets?
I would really appreciate any useful info/advice.
