Q&A – Do You Have A Potting Mix Recipe?


Pam asks Annie:

Q Do you have a recipe for potting mix that you can share? I looked for the Sunshine mix you mentioned and can’t find anywhere to purchase it locally.  Plus I was a little scared at the thought of ordering a “bale” since I have no idea how much that is in kitchen-measurement terms.


A  A bale of the Sunshine mix is 2.8 cubic feet.  I’m not great with math, but Google tells me that that equates to approximately 7.5 gallons. Personally, I do not have a recipe.  I use a commercial mix that I cut anywhere from 60/40 to 50/50 with perlite.

I hope this helps,
Annie :-)
