Does anyone know how to make a good potting soil? My husband likes to pot plants, but doesn't know of a good potting soil. He has a compost pile. Should he use just straight compost or put something else with it?
Good soil can be made by using your compost and manure mixed other dirt you might have that is hopefully decent......or....well the soil I use is GardenVille soil....it's awesome I think....they have compost , canadian sphagnum peat , perlite , parmagnetic sands and other decomposed mulch-like stuff.....if you got good compost and some manure plus some or all of these ingredients....you can't go wrong.....look for GardenVille soil if you got some near you....it's worth it.

If you go to Howard's homepage on this website, and click on "Basic Organic Program" you will find a recipe for making your own potting soil. Otherwise, there are quite a few good organic ones available. I am partial to Gardenville's potting soil which you can buy at most any organic nursery.
