Mel's Mix

Post  gardenertaylor on Wed Mar 27, 2013 12:32 pm

I made up my very first batch ever of Mel's Mix this past week. And now I am learning about the new Mel's Mix available at HD and Lowe's. Oh well! I had fun making my own mix. But I am curious about the pre-packaged mix.

Any SFG veterans have experience comparing your own mix vs the pre-packaged mix? Or is anyone planning to experiment to see how they compare?

I'd love to know how they compare. flower
