Mel has a gift for explaining things in a clear and entertaining manner. Join the Square Foot revolution and enjoy more produce with less work!
The only problem I found was with the vermiculite. Horticultural grade is very fine, and suitable for covering seeds etc, but I could not find 'agricultural' grade anywhere. I did finally find what was required - but it is 'INSULATION' grade, and is also used for making lightweight concrete. This may help those who wish to use the mix as specified.
Since obtaining the correct mix I find that it keeps the 'soil' warm, damp but well drained and works well.
