Potting Soil Recipe for Annuals

High in nutrients, this mix pumps out the flowers without extra feeding

Fine Gardening - Issue 125

The Recipe
1 part expanded slate
1 part composted chicken manure
1 part worm castings
1 part composted pine bark
1 part coarse river sand

Because the worm castings and chicken manure provide enough nutrients to last throughout the season and the pine bark continues to increase fertility as it decomposes, this mix requires little or no extra feeding on your part.
