I AM having a pH problem, but I’m taking the blame for that. Just added some granulated lime to the soil, hoping it will get me back to where I need to be.
The reason I asked is because I’m trying to get away from the soil with time release fertilizers. I’ve always used Miracle Grow before, but I’m learning (thanks to ILGM and the helpful people here) that I need better control of the nutrients.
I was at the feed store and saw FFoF and Happy Frog sitting there, so I compared them side by side. The Happy Frog listed all those beneficial microbes that I keep hearing about while I didn’t see much with the FFoF, yet the rest of it looked really good.
I know companies hype their products for the sales, so I was thinking "what if I mix them both with perlite? " wouldn’t that make for a truly complete soil? I don’t know, so I asked.
I know (now) that most of my problems in the past have been due to pH problems locking out nutrients. That information itself has made finding this community worth my time. The rest of the great information here has just been a pleasant bonus!
Thank you Dennis.
