id say no, esp to the first one. The peat moss has miracle gro in it which shouldnt be there. No fertilizers or plant food, you just need the peat moss.

Im not sure on the oyster shells but i think they need to be pulverized? You want them to be a powder, as fine as possible.

The oyster shell is fine...
(BTW feed stroes have 50 pound bags of oyster shell for less then $10. Petsmart charges $1.99 for those little boxes.)

I'd concur on the peat- the extra nutes may not be good. A casing layer shouldn't have any nutes in it.

prisoner, is the sphagnum moss going to work the same as peat moss?

i would also say no to the miracle grow enriched peat moss. you should be able to easily find some without the miracle grow or try the sphagnum moss.
the crushed oyster shells will be fine as your ph buffer.

good luck
peace
