As you guys know its now Winter down here and the weather is really starting to get chilly.
This is my time to repot and I have just completed thisd task - thank goodness.
I am trying a mix of 3 parts potting mix, 1 part vermiculite, 1 part perlite, 1 part peatmoss & 1 part cow manure. Keep fingers crossed.
A friend of mine used this mix last summer and his plants were 'exceptional' so I thought I would gove it a try. Iw ill keep you all posted on the outcome next spring.
Just for interest I repotted 150 pots into 5" pots and I now have 75 named varieties (with a duplcate of each in case of losses).
I have on oreder another 20 but dont think I will get all of these but here's hoping :eek:
