Hey everybody whats up.

I was wandering if anybody knew what kind of soil i should/can get. I can only go to the local stores. Like Wal-mart, Home depot, Lowe's, and Target...
I'm really not sure what to get, I just plan on putting down a couple of GHS' Green o Matic. so they should stay short and be done fast.. Any way Any recommendations?!?

I've had pretty good success so far with a blend of 75% Jiffy seed starting mix and 25% perlite.

Yeah those will do fine, just try to avoid soils with time release ferts in them. Just go to the garden center @ home depot and look for a bag of "organic" soil, basically any kind. It will probably be from a local farm in the state and have some sort of manure in there.

good luck man
