Container soil using pine bark only ?
Hello all. This weekend I screened more pine bark (PB ) and while screening I started wondering if anyone on this forum uses PB only (with lime to raise pH ) as a soil.
I'm using 2 screens, 1/2" and 1/8", and about 2/3 of the PB I'm working with is within this range. Most of the remaining PB is fine material less than 1/8".
I'm sure it's possible to use only PB with lime as a soil but I'm wondering if I would experience drainage problems, or water retention issues.
Just curious if anyone has tried this.
