My Self mix Potting soil guide :

Base on my own opinions on how to determine a good medium for plants:

Loamy + Good Aeration + can retain moisture

^ These are the base soil before adding in nutrients

Clay soil that is commonly known that it gets harden and might suffocate the plant, But now during my trial I am adding in some clay soil to mix with my compost, i balanced up as my soil could be too rich,

Recipe :

1 part Perlite (for aeration / loamy / water contain)

1 part vermiculite OR 1 part Cocopeat ( For moisture retaining)

2 part Clay soil + Black soil (they are cheap and to be use to balance the rich compost and perlites  )

1 or 2 part Local Soil  / Potting Mix

2 part Compost

Before planting the greens, add 1 or 2 tbsp of vermicompost + Epsom Salt(Magnesium) + Garden lime (Or Egg shell crushed)(Calcium).  THis is especially useful for heavy feeder plants like corn and tomato. But this is for rooted small plants.

.

For Germinating the seeds, you only need potting mix and some vermicompost.

Happy Gardening!
