Heads up on casing mix
    #3806407 - 02/20/05 01:06 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

In the past I had used Jiffy mix for a casing layer with good results. Not even thinking about the ingredients I used a seedling starting mix as a casing layer. I believe the seedling mix was from Shultz, I know it was from Ace Hardware so whichever they have is what it was. Don't use it.

It is absolute shit. It is the worst soil product I have ever used. For casing it simply does not work. For starting seedlings it's horrible. The "soil" doesn't retain water so as soon as you try to water the seedlings all the water just runs right through the soil and out the bottom of the planter. Scott's seedling soil from Home Depot is pretty good, for seedlings at least.
