Anything i should do to the soil?

  1. Is there anything I should do to my soil that will help my plant like if I put ash or moss to grow it in?

    quality earthworm castings and great compost are the main source of nutrients and microbes when we start out our soil.....of course we mix this in with a sphagnum peat based mixture.....promix seems to be quite popular, but advanced sunshine mix #4 will do well if that is all you can get.

    heres some great threads, grab your reading glasses!!!!

  4. Prophet -

    The absolutely best thing that you can do is to read those threads that OSUB linked for you. The very best thing. There is probably more honest-to-goodness real life hands on organic gardening knowledge in those threads and in our stickys in general than 25 of the best "top Seller" gardening books out there. No shit. After you finish reading them, read them again, and once you're finally done, start asking questions. Folks here are good people and very willing to help those that truly want to learn. If you can hold off a few days, get some reading in and start the questions rolling you'll probably be further along than many and will have a good foundation to begin a good organic soil mix.

    By doing this, actually taking the time right now you'll be way ahead of the game and will do far better in your gardening endeavors than if yÓu just asked a question or two, bought a bag of soil down at Lowes and left it at that.

    The results of organic gardening can be truly amazing.

    Good luck.

    Jerry.
     
  5. Ps - stay away from the ashes.

  6. The stickies OSUB linked you to will even answer questions you have yet to ask!

    Best to you

  7. Should I water with pond water from my backyard?
     
  8. It's flowing so can I use it?
     
  9. Does it have fish in it? I think the fish doodoo would help...correct me if I'm wrong blades......
     
  10. What kind of tap water do you have? City, well, etc? Just wondering.

    Pond water "could" be fine but not sure if you need to go through that.

    Jerry.
     

  11. Your pond water should be fine for an organic soil grow. Here's an article on water quality you may find useful.

  12. I use pond water from a local pond a short distance away from me for compost teas. I started after I read that article chunk linked. The pond is full of fish, frogs, birds, and lots of plants. Without a scope I can only say it does not seem to hurt. About this time last year I started making teas to use all over my sandy yard and garden. Other than my sprayer plugging all the time everything went fine, and the plants/yard thrived with that tea......MIW
