Pine bark too fine for 5-1-1?
I've been lurking here for about a month learning all I can about container soils, hoping to try my hand at 5-1-1 for my veggies next year. I brought it up with a neighbor who enjoys gardening, and she offered me a few bags of pine bark mulch that were taking up space in her shed to experiment with. I screened it through 1/2" hardware cloth, but I'm concerned that the leftover particles might be too fine and retain too much water. Can anyone with more 5-1-1 experience take a gander and let me know if it appears workable? If so, should I omit the peat and/or increase the perlite (if so, to what ratio)?
