Seed and Seedling Starter Mix

by Meg
(Bullsbrook, WA)

For those who've been asking about a good mix to start of seeds and seedlings, I have a recipe that I have found good success with.


It is basically equal parts of vermiculite (or perlite), fine to medium sand, and either compost or worm castings. For small seeds I sieve the mix over the top so it's not too coarse.

Thanks Meg! I thought I was on the right track, but didn't think about adding sand. Thanks for the recipe.
