    cyclopse new supplies

    2.2' compressed peat for 7.00 and 50 lbs of quickrete sand for like 3.00. Soil for all my plants. Also bought an Adelae, with 2 divisions. The plan is to get garbage bags and put the peat and sand in seperate ones and get a cup and measure out equal parts, and then fill the pots up. My LFS is growing and shrinking. I might take pics after its all done.

    timmy, if you bought the play sand make sure you wash it pretty good before you use it.

    Play sand legally has to be free of all salts and chemicals. It's perfectly safe to use.

    I would double check your sand to make sure there is NOTHING else in it besides sand. I can't imagine quickcrete going to the trouble to put their name on a bag just filled with sand. I use the sandblasting sand from menards or lowes.

    Seconded. IIRC, I had a bag of Quickcrete that was filled with stones and pebbles with a pinch of actual sand in it........ and of course, it was for concrete making. It even clumped when it got wet. *facepalm*

    But PLAYsand is intended to fill kid's sand boxes. It must be clean, and non-toxic, just in case one of 'em gets the munchies.

    Hey, I have a question where in the HECK do you find peat moss that is not made by Scott's or miracle grow (these brands add fertilizer)?

    At home depot all i could find was miracle grow

    You need to ask for Organic or Canadian Sphagnum Peat. If you ask for "peat potting soil" the Miracle Grow and Scotts is what they will direct you to when the kids at the shop hear the words "potting soil". If they still don't show you the right stuff, take a walk over by the mulches. The peat bales are not usually in the same area as potting soils and top/soils and is always in a SQUARE bale (no matter the brand), not a big flat pillow bag like the other stuff. All I could find this year was a 3 cu ft (or bigger) square bale by Premire brand, I hate buying so much cos I generally don't use that much of it in a whole year but It was only $9.'

    Someone posted a pic of the bag online saving me the trouble of photoing mine. I got this at Home Depot (but in a larger size)
