High dollar Bagged compost.

Post  MrBooker on 8/28/2016, 12:16 pm

I only bought this one bag because of the ingredients. I want to do some tests on it. It's over $11.00 a bag.

sometimes I buy a product like this for potting up veggie seedlings...just for the mycorrhizae...and they get transplanted into the garden.  I mix with compost and other bagged cheaper potting mixes.

you would have to take a look at the cost/benefit of using this

Mr. Booker
Wondering how that $11.00 bag of compost worked for you?  I agree with Sanderson that it contains a lot of wood, still I am curious as the manufacturer did list many things that microscopically sounded promising.
 So, would you buy it again????

Great question. I'm curious too.
