Compost, talk to me.
So further to the Red Currant thread (and the planter thread) I’m also going to be growing kiwi in a pot (as a climber up the house).
Obviously im going to need to fill the planters and pots with a suitable medium (about 300l worth...). Now the sods I cut from the lawn last year to make the veggie patch are still rotting down and the compost bin isn’t far enough along to provide sufficent compost and at present I can’t harvest much from other parts of the garden (although it is a nice sandy loam)
Both the red currants and kiwi recommend a well draining compost like a John Innes no.3 however this is obviously an expensive option.
Can I get away with a mix of some No.3 and the rest cheap generic 3 x 50l bags for £10 type stuff? Or dig a percentage of the loam out of the veggie batch and replace with cheap co post?
Thanks in advance
