Here in England we have a company called Suttons. I received a catalogue and in it there is a 75 litre bag of "all purpose compost" it boasts 'a rich mix of Irish moss peat, vermiculite, nutrients and trace elements'. I am struggling to find Mels mix as Plantoid knows Im wondering if this could be the answer. cheers

Can you find any manure composts to mix with it. Say half and half. Might work.

french bean,

. Chance your arm and buy one ,if it is no good you can always use it as part of the 1/3 of peat element. It sounds like a sort of miracle grow product ... they have added nutrients possibly " blood fish & bone meal & " juice out a big compost heap that will decay and give a year or so plant feed before it is exhausted.

Wyvale garden centers are a big national chain ... perhaps see if they have one close to you .. they do have composted horse manure in bags ( I got plenty of part composted wood in the ones I purchased ) .

They also have composted farmyard manure , ( again with plenty of incomposted wood content in the ones I purchased 0 .. no details of the animals but it did contain loads of unbroken cobbles of horse dung and what looked like slurry out of a milking parlour as well as smell of ammonia like a turkey farm . they also sell pelleted chicken muck .

It made a good MM after I added several bucket of 4 yr old cold composted real stable muck that had wood pulp and straw beddings in it and liberal sprinklings of blood fish & bone meal as i mixed it up .. This is in all of my beds at present ( own home made compost were not ready in time ) and you've seen the pictures of how they are performing .



Bung up a picture ... mean while I'll see if I can find out more about it .

EDITED JUST SENT SUTTONS AN ENQUIRY EMAIL .

pre bagged mix Empty MM

Post  fenlander 7/1/2012, 4:39 am

Hi Frenchbean,
This is my first year at growing anything at all, so it was a steep learning curve !
I was also struggling to find suitable MM components at first. Next season I am
hoping to have produced all my own different composts ( not literally, of course)
To get me started, for my 12 beds (all 4x4) I bought 1600 ltrs of coir, 1600 ltrs
of course vermiculite, 900 ltrs of mixed m/room,horse,chicken, 320 ltrs cow
manure and 320 ltrs of worm cast. All bought over the internet. As these were
all commercially produced I couldn't be certain about the quality but all the beds
have vegetables growing very strongly in them, so something must be right. All
the items were UK sourced, they might not have been the cheapest but I just
wanted to get going. If there is anything I can help with - just shout, although
Plantoid is the man to ask, I've only been doing this a few months.
