Thanks itchy I'm going to give living mulch a run this time I think and I've got some blumats to try out as well.hi mate
i'm sure DNG will chime in with his ideas , sorry to butt in
if your talking dry mulch then look into a mix of alfalfa/lucerne hay & barley straw , they work pretty well
pot size is contributing factor though , both hay & straw , well allot of things used for mulch are dry
with smaller amounts of soil its hard to keep the moisture consistent enough to keep those dry ingredients
braking down as you would like
if your talking living mulch then look into dichondra ( the greener version not so much the silvery / green one )
mixed in with some grasses , rye , oat & barley , dichondra is a perennial that's a low growing ground cover
fairly shallow rooted that's happy in full sun or part shade , the grasses are a little more deeper rooted & offer
a diverse set of microbes they attract to there root system / pots soil life
pot size is still a factor = larger soil volumes the better
will also add blumats can help with consistent moister in pots = happier healthier soil life = happier healthier plants
i'm sure if you ask some general questions you might have about general soil mixes & there uses
i'm sure DNG would be happy to discuss with u GK
i would think talking about a competitors product is prob not considered kosher
Nice to hear nici.
Which soil are you using? The guide is a basic framework around when and how to use the amendments during your crop cycle to enhance plant health and yield.
I ship to WA pretty frequently. It's potting media as far as anyone is concerned...
