    I wonder if something like this will work with the large bag of compost on my kitchen worktop
    Son came home yesterday and said OMG! Even in student digs they don't have mud in the kitchen

    I use bog standard compost. I do add some grit/sand to loosen it a bit if I remember when taking cuttings.

    Mixture of compost, worm castings, coir, perlite, vermiculite and bloodfishbone/chicken poo pellets. This year we should have enough homemade compost, but if we run out it's usually New Horizon peat free (they seem to have really improved the formula, didn't find any non-composted woody bits last year). I'd like to make enough leaf mould to replace the coir.
