Was this a regular potting soil or a starter mix, Branching Out?a brand of potting soil that I am quite happy with
This is sold as potting soil, and I am using it to fill milk jugs for 'winter sowing' some seeds. I picked up a 6" deep Rubbermaid clear bin for $1 at the thrift shop, and it holds six milk jugs perfectly. I have them sitting on our patio table for now, under cover so they don't get too soggy. One variety, Art Shades phlox, needs darkness to germinate so that milk jug has a black sack over it.Was this a regular potting soil or a starter mix, Branching Out?
Many years ago now, I bought a brand that was terrible and it very nearly ruined my season. Made a decision that the problem was was the soil and made a quick switch with enough seeds and time to have done that.
This was not with a starter mix and I don't know if that mix was even available at the retail level at that time. I would prefer not to go that route these days but I'm beginning to feel almost compelled to.
