this is typically not necessary if you made your mix with at least five different types of compost. I suggest adding amendments only when you see a need to do so. Watch your plants for signs of nutrient deficiency, but I suspect you will likely not need them.@jrfrommd wrote:A good friend of mine who farms on a large scale for a living recommended a shot of calcium when my plants start "setting fruit"...is this necessary with Mel's Mix?

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
