I have been trying to get a seedling propagation mixture together, similar and as effective as the commercial growers use. Nigh on bloody impossible !
I went to the Alnwick Castle Gardens the other day and they recommended I try some supplier down in Lincolnshire for their mix. I found that this supplier only supplied commercial amounts, and I would have required a car park to store their delivery sizes ! Another place in Carlisle was as useless.
I am simply after, some fine bark mixture, to blend with something like Innes No1, and hope to grow seeds and or seedlings that grow perkily under cover, until they are as I see in garden centers.............. simple enough ?
Has anyone out there got the secret that will take away my hit and miss attempts and sometimes nearly 80% casualty rate, despite every care being taken. ? ? ?
