TOO MUCH PEAT

Post  Partsgal on 7/25/2013, 6:46 pm

How do I correct too much peat? Some of my little garden isn't doing very well, and some things are okay.  I used the 1/3 peat but also after reading a lot on this forum I checked my composting bags and two of them had added peat so I'm sure that is my problem.

I would add more compost without peat.

Partsgal welcome to the forum!  I would agree, add compost and mix it in really well.

Thanks for the help.  I worked on it some last night and was going to replant this morning, but woke up to a nice morning thundershower.  I don't have enough warm weeks at this point for anything I replant to mature before frost, but I can at least see if they will grow.

I love thunderstorms! You might want to try things that grow quicker. Lettuce, spinach, radishes, and beets. Lettuces and spinach you can pick off outside leaves as it grows so you can have a bit of a salad. I can't think of other things at the moment. I don't know how many weeks you have till your last frost but those like the cooler weather anyway. I do like your idea of at least growing something whether you will be able to harvest from it or not! It will also give you a good idea of how your MM is.
