Potting Mixes

Potting plants is a very satisfying job. A common question is why should you use potting mix over ordinary soil? Garden soil is loose and ideal when it is dry but when it is in a pot and has been watered it often sets hard and will be no good for the plant. Potting soil on the other hand contains a higher percentage of organic matter and is free-draining because of its coarse sand component. Good potting soil also contains slow-release fertilisers to supply the plant with nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus that are required for growth. It is free-draining and will not compact into a hard mass when watered in a pot.
