When making your own organic garden mix, there are several things you should consider; not every plant can use the same type of soil. Some plants are preferred to be planted on acidic soil. There are succulent, cacti, and propagation of cutting mixes. Those mixes posses their own distinctive qualities in order to serve their specific purposes.
For the propagation of seeds purpose, good organic garden mix doesn't have to contain any nutrients. Seeds already contain enough nutrients so they’re already able to supply themselves for the germination process. But the soil mix should be toxin-free, weed-free, well-drained, can retain moisture and have many air space. Garden soils tend to have different characteristics, they are too compact which makes it hard to be penetrated by the seedling’s root to penetrate.
For seed germinating, you can use non-soil products such as straight peat moss, vermiculite, perlite, or sphagnum moss. Once the seeds start to germinate and the seedlings come out, you can make a non-soil organic garden mix. To benefit your plants better, you can add compost into the mix.
Before you begin to make your own organic mix, you’d better to do a research first about the plants you’ll grow. The soil mix not only can be used for indoor plants, but it’s also can be used for outdoor plants. Plants that use containers or window boxes for mediums to grow.
To find the composition of ideal organic garden mix, it will require trials and errors. Every organic gardener has their own preference. Try to combine several different non-soil products and see which one works best for you. After several tries, you might got yourself good potting media for your plants.
A nature-friendly way of gardening, organic gardening tries to be always in harmony with mother nature. To grow plants with organic way will give you healthier crops and support the ecosystem as well.
