Good Afternoon All,
I bought 3 x 60 ltr bags of this instead of the potting compost, and I don't need it all. How can I turn 2 bags of it from ericaceous to potting compost - could I just add lime and if so, how much to a litre ? Silver Surfer
Can you not sell it on? Maybe to a neighbour or someone shielding who is struggling to get any?
It obviously can be done as adding lime to peat (which is acidic by nature) is how peat-based multi-purpose composts are made.
I found this but whether you choose to trust the formula is up to you:
A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
Thank you for your reply Bob; I think I'll just buy some normal potting compost and keep the Ericaceous for any new plants I buy that need it. Silver Surfer
