Soil outside

Recommended Posts

I'm growing my first plant and was wondering if anyone can help me with what soil I can use for the plant, can I use regular flower soil ?

Get a peat or coco based growing media and just add some perlite, I know the nursery near me has both.

Not just peat and perlite as that will be inert. You'll need compost in there too. Or a good potting soil

1part peat moss or coco, 1 part perlite and 1 part compost or potting soil

Will I have to transplant the plant when changing soil later ?

Yes. Unless you're planting it into a garden bed of sorts?

Biobizz fishmix mix for veg and biobizz grow and Bloom for flowering. 

 

If you want to save a bit just use the grow instead of fish mix
