Hi

Only mid-January and cannot wait to start my first season with SFG.

Curious if I can use Mel's mix for my flowers in planters..   I always transplant anyway into larger container.

I always have a large impatiens garden, that either grows or doesn't.  When I did the hole in the ground for the little plant, would a small scoop of MM help.

Thanks

Yes, if growing in pots/containers.  If growing in garden soil you would be better off just adding compost to the hole when transplanting.

I use MM in all my pots. I use compost mixed in for the one in-dirt garden spot. Mel's Mix is too precious for dirt. Very Happy
