Homemade Potting Soil

Repurposed glass potting containers

Vermiculite, an ingredient in most commercial potting soils, has been found to contain small amounts of asbestos and has even been linked to asbestos-related illnesses. Make your own vermiculite-free potting soil this season.

What you’ll need:

· 3½ gallons peat moss

· ¾ cup limestone

· 1½ gallons screened compost,
aged for at least 8 months

· One 5-gallon or bigger bucket or tub
to mix it all together in.
