We get asked often where we get our organic greenhouse soil from. Well, it's actually one of our most substantial expenses right now. We tried sourcing large amounts from Jolly Farmer out East, but it was still too costly once you factor in the shipping. We buy in 28 litre bags from our seed supplier. He is able to give us a tad of a discount because of some volume, but it's still very costly. It's Premier ProMix's Ultimate Organic Mix and it works well for us each year. It is essential to feed fish fertilizer as the seedling mature and grow. I am still sourcing a bulk amount of this stuff out. Fish is excellent with all vegetables and herbs.
Most retail garden centers should carry this soil now. If not, I would ask for it. Most conventional potting soil has all sorts of crap in it, like wetting agents and synthetic fertilizers. The organic soil has the odd twig and stone and sometimes a sea shell, but all in all a very good product. Parsley and other herbs have also hit the dirt. Parsley tends to be slow to germinate therefore I always seed late February along with the onions and leeks. Stay tuned....I'll be dragging the laptop out to the greenhouse soon to keep my orders in check and will make the time to blog more frequently and share lots of 'green' photos!
