    There are a bazillion types of soil out there. Let Alone Personal mixes that people swear by. I know personally I go by feel and retention along with certain certain pre-mixes and stand alone products all mixed together. I preferably like a fast draining soil that hold nutrients.

    My soil Mix consists of
    Topsoil
    Verm
    Perlite
    Peatmoss
    Sheep shit
    Chicken shit
    Cow shit
    Sand
    Micro neuts ( bonemeal,blood meal etc,)

    My mix seams to work very well for my area I was just wondering what other people use

    I tried squeezing those bats to get some guano but they must have been getting ready to feed.

    I was just fucking with you. I put way too much in the garden two years ago and I'm still paying for it.

    In all honesty, I've heard that they grow best (really well) in bat guano.

    I enjoy hydro but i am a bit of a soil cheat

    :embarrassed:

    My soil mix is more like a hand watered hydroponics setup.

    50/50 John Innes #1 Sifted through 10mm / perlite

    For the first week after repotting they are fed from the soil as i water, then it becomes like a porous sponge and everything the plants need they get from me and my liquid nutrients and supplements as they are watered.

    Not growing any green in there but I wanted to share my soil anyway. All sorts of things came together for our raspberry patch. Ended up adding wood mulch, a heavy layer of leaves, spent mycelium cakes and a special present this year. Bunnies pooped all over the leaves. They pooped so much there is enough rabbit poop there to evenly cover the whole area with at least one layer of pellets - they did this all over the winter some how. Love them bunnies - they did such a target-specific fertilizing job :)
    I'm going to get some clover seeds and cover the floor there too. Clover is nitrogen fixing , prevents soil erosion and traps moisture - and the other factor is that I want the bunnies to keep coming back to the same spot with their relatives ;)

    Good eating nice fat wild bunnies, long long ago i used to own a ferret (polecat) she loved to run down a run and get me some good wild meat, as long as i gave her all the entrails when i gutted them, she sued to look so happy all covered in blood as she dragged them out the run and pleased as punch with herself when she used to watch me gutting them waiting for her entrails and gibs, me mother used to hate it and eventually made me get rid of it because she stunk out the coal shed and made me smell of polecat all the time

    You had a ferret that could kill rabbits? That is fucking sweet, it must be bigger than the ferrets we have over here.... LOL

    I'm running 50/50 sunshine mix #4 and happy frog, it's really lacking in nutrients even with microbe inoculation. More of a bland substrate to work on.

    I hope to delve more into soil mixes in the coming months, and brewing teas to complement them

    Ferrets are vicious as fuck mate, half the size of the bunnies but twice as long like a stoat, she used to drag them out by the throat eyes gleaming with blood stained right down her white furry body, she would go back in again and again if i let her, I only ever took two to three rabbits from each run, sometimes she was hard to catch and stop going back in.

    this one is identical
