    A few questions about growing..

    Did you pull the mesh off before planting in the ground?. The mesh screws up root growth. One time I dug up a few plants that looked sick and found the mesh was keeping the roots from getting out of the jiffy pellets.   I use peat pots now-...

    Morons once again doing what morons do best

    What gets me is the hoarders are the same people who don't wear masks...protect themselves or others from them. They get free food etc. from everywhere they can also.

    ***Beginner Tips?

    Make your own mix. Start with 3-1-1,bark based. I personally use more like a 3/1/1/1 mix. 3 parts bark,1 part each of pearlite,pomice stone and peat. I use more of the 1 stuff because the original mix doesn't hold water well.   See the posts here about 311 mixes using bark and potting soil.  ...
