Mulch in Wicking System
Hi, I'm getting into self-watering bucket gardening (This design in particular:: http://www.globalbuckets.org/).
I am trying to come up with a cheap soil mix that will be able to wick water vertically. I have lots of good compost and lots of hardwood mulch and cedar mulch. I haven't heard much about amending soil with mulch and was wondering what others think about doing a blend of compost and mulch as my potting mix to grow tomatoes, squash, strawberries, and more.
