Re: Concrete mix

Haven't tried this recipe yet, but it's from a book on trough gardening.
use a 2:3:3 ratio of cement, peat moss and perlite measured by volume. That comes out to 30 pounds cement, 1 cubic foot peat moss and 1.5 cubic feet perlite plus enough water to make it moist.  I was planning on trying it out myself this year.

Does anyone have the recipe for the lightweight concrete you can use to make troughs? I think it either has peatmoss or perlite in it.
