potting soil vs top soil

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Outdoors' started by MrLanky, May 22, 2006.

  1. So I recently bought a couple 40lb bags of organic top soil. Is this better or worse than potting soil? The top soil seemed more compact than potting soil, but I can always aerate it.
  2. Forget soil, use black cow.
  3. Mix in a bit of sand to make it drain better.

    What is sold as ´potting soil´ is usually nearly all peat.

    Organic top soil is going to have more nutrients. I get best results fom a nutritous, well draining mix. I add horse shit, sand, volcanic rock and garden compost to a peat based substrate. And use a comfrey based liquid fert.

    We all have to make best use of what we can get.
  4. i've had good experience with it. I germed my seed in them. The soil is very light...of course I live in a different continent so...
