I spent the day at Yeo Valley farm organic garden today (more on that later). This afternoon the head gardener, James, showed us how he makes his own seed sowing mix, which let’s face it, could save us all a penny or two.
He roughly sieves his homemade leaf mould mix to get the lumps out and adds the same amount again of horticultural sand. That’s it! The resulting mixture is fine, light and packed full of nutrients. I’m not sure I’ll ever buy seed compost again.
