Potting Mix after seed sprout

Post  BrotherNorm on 2/11/2012, 11:39 am

Greetings,

I know this has been asked and answered in a previous thread but I'll be darned if I can locate it so, sorry for the repeat. Without further ado the question.

I plan on starting my seeds in vermiculite and transplanting them into plastic cells and or cow pots after they sprout. I don't have all the ingredients for MM but I read where some have used various types of organic potting mix for this step.

I bought a bag of Espoma Brand Organic Seed Starter Premium Potting Mix to transplant the seedlings into and grow them until they are ready for the SFG. Will this work or should I use something else?

Thanks....

Thanks for the info camprn. Their website didn't list any retailers. Are they online only?

I buy it at the local nursery, garden supply and grain store. I have not seen it at the orange box store here in town. Call around your area, most likely someone will carry it. What a Face
