I’m not an expert on living soil, and I just go to build a soil.com and use their suggested mixes. Not familiar with Gala. Maybe @organicyoda aka @Budbrother can chime in.

I do have 2 comments.

  • Perlite is not ideal in my opinion, it migrates to the top of the soil. I’ve started using a mix of rice hulls and red lava rock instead.

  • if you can put them all in ground with your living soil in the hole first, that would be ideal. In the ground it will be living and you will never have a deficiency, in my experience.

Here is my winter crop in raised beds.


Thank you for your advice!!! I have too use pots, because not enough of my back yard has sunlight for the plants. The “plantable” area is only suited for a couple of plants and is mainly grass, that I have too keep. If I use pots I can locate them anywhere in my sunny backyard areas.

It’s a 1:1:1 recipe so that good. From what i can see, you’re gonna run outta Calcium in that mix.

Thanks brother! I will make sure I address the Calcium in the soil! . . . :v:

Your web address takes you to dumptruck site. Lol


Lol, sure does!


That’s weird !

Unless you want a dumptruck of soil?
