Used Gritty Mix

monet_gJune 12, 2012

While my plants love the gritty mix, I'm going to move them to the 5-1-1 because of the weight issue. Can I put the used GM in my flower beds? While I do amend the soil it tends to be heavy. Would the mix help, hinder or do nothing?


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

gritty mix plus clay soil, could be a recipe for concrete.

If you have clay, it might just envelope the grit without helping improve pore spacing.
