Does anyone have Mel's book "Square Metre Gardening?" On page 99 of the 2013 US edition he has a table which shows the number of cubic feet of Mel's Mix needed for various size boxes. I would like to have a copy of that table shown in liters.

Is the depth of each box supposed to be 15 cm? If so, and if my math is correct, you're looking at 150 Litres per square meter box(100cm x 100cm x 15cm = 150000 cubic cm, or 0.15 cubic meters. 0.15 cubic meters = 150 Liters).

Again, assuming my math is right, that's 50L of each of the 3 ingredients for Mel's Mix, and to break it down even further, 10L per each of the 5 composts. If this math is right(hopefully someone with more practice with the metric system will correct me), give me a couple of days and I'll throw it on a spread sheet.
