I know you’ll love the orange sherbet ⚑️ Haven’t grown the pink kush but sounds like another quality Barneys product!

@macky Had a look online and at roughly Β£40 for a 40ltr bag of peat & perlite mix with a few amendments added it's def not for me. All I could think about was the old production triangle from back when I used to mess about with after effects and other CGI software. But this kind of applies to anything in life and not meant to put people off doing anything.

production triangle

Back at the painting etc around the house. But after looking at the amendments they list. It's not anything you couldn't buy in and make 100 bags worth of this stuff for a fraction of the money. They also list one as langbeinite, which is a rather fancy way of saying potash.

You're basically charging you over the odds for something you could do yourself. It's give a man a fish, and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he will never go hungry kinda thing. Sure the fish is great at the time, but you are on the hook yerself. Always looking for that next fish, when you should be chilling on the river bank lol.

And it's the same with a lot of good but overpriced products like this. If anybody has discord or the like? I'd be glad to talk over the basics of soil mixes, amendments and the like. Plus everybody has something valid to add. Maybe come up with a Percys DIY budget mix for soil, coco or whatever.

I may run a few test mixes myself this year just to see what happens. Will be a few autos since to have a quick turn around. But also with some peppers and tomatoesΒ  or whatever down the poly tunnel at the allotments. I can have say three autos each in its own version of the soil mix and say three or four peppers/tomatoes in each type as well. That way I have a buffer v one auto seed just being healthier or more vigorous than the other two.

Right back to the painting. Stay chill and enjoy the rest of your hols people.
