Tonight I was doing some research on potting soils and I ran across this site that would be an extremely valuable resource for any avid container gardener! I have a particular blend of soil that I use for my clients' potted gardens, but there are so many brands out there to choose from, it can be a little confusing to discern which is the best one. You might even think that all potting soils are alike, that you're mostly paying for a brand, right? Well...truth be told, I sometimes think that, too. I'm only human, after all! But here is a guy, Wayne Schmidt, who took five popular brands and put them to the test. And I'm talkin' testing, baby! He would do Mr. Atchkins, my 9th grade science teacher, proud, with his controlled study features. Take a gander and tell me you're not impressed.So while you're all trying to forget that I just used the phrase "take a gander," please leave a comment and let us know what kind of potting soil you use. Is it pre-mixed? A national brand or a specialty local recipe? Do you make your own? Inquiring minds want to know!
