In a visit to a local garden center yesterday morning I was 
introduced to ProMix.  My questions about Perlite and Vermiculite 
provoked a question, "Have you considered....?"

When I got home with the bag--light as a feather--I found a familiar 
sight.  A lot of things I have bought in the past few years have been 
grown in this product...which gives me some confidence.

Pots got dug out of the storage area yesterday, and after reading 
some of the posts I think I need to stay with to some of the larger 
ones.  At first I intended to use mostly 4", but since I have 
plenty of the gallon size and plenty too of the ProMix, there's no 
reason not to use the larger.

Following Walter's method I also got sand.  Laurie Frazer has found 
sand around rhizomes in her heavy clay soil a help in dealing with 
soft rot, and Walter uses sand on the top of his seeds.  Why not?  
Sounds like a solution to a problem I've had with seeds floating up 
out of their bed following a heavy downpour.
