I just put in a vegetable box and filled it 100% full with nothing but organic compost that I purchased from a local supplier. Then a friend said that it might be too strong for my plants and they will not grow. Any thoughts?
This might depend on if you are starting out with seeds or plants, and which veggies you are growing.
I am hoping for a mixture of both seeds and plants. Carrots, Lettuce, Blueberries, Pumkins, Cucumbers, Tomoatoes, etc... Thanks for your help.
The Pumpkins should do fine from seed or plants, as well as probably the cucumbers. The tomatoes should do OK on this rich of a mixture from plants, I'm not sure on them from seed in this though. Input from others on the rest of the vegetables please!:)
I start seeds in heavy compost, but transplant to a mix. Depending on how aged it is, it will definitely burn your plantings.
Also, check the guide on manure types, as some of your plants have differing requirements.
Also, depends on soil type:
Good Luck, and keep us posted on your progress!
