Soil for Your Container Gardens
Your choice of soil is one of the most important components in your container gardens. Rob Sproule discusses soil mixes in this short video.
Kuhlmann's Market Gardens and Greenhouses uses and highly recommends Sunshine Mix. There are different variations of this mix depending on whether you are seeding, transplanting seedlings, or for established plants.
Remember: Jim Hole of Holes Greenhouse in St. Albert advises when selecting a potting soil, choose one that includes spagnum peat moss. There are other peat mosses but spagnum is the best.
