homemade compost

i was cut out fm getting mushroom compost  by a plant policy also
so, necessity being  the mother  of invention, i develpoed my own blend.
2parts  bedding (pine shavings fm co-op or farm store  about 4.00 a bale
1 part peat
1 part pearlite (much cheaper at the masonry supply)
1 part fine pine bark
1 part sawdust (optional)
1 part  sharp sand (Optional )
1 hand full super[phosphate
mix well.  first watering with fertilizer solution

I use it to ammend my soil
i use it in potting hostas
i use it in growing small plants i order
i make 5  55 gal drums of in the fall and let it winter over
it works good for me and its cheap
and i can make as much as i want
try it   you'll like it
