Kirk's Base Fertilizer and Soil Block Recipe
My soil block recipe is based on Elliot Coleman's recipe with a couple of exceptions. I've converted the measures to something more convenient for the home gardener. Here's the mix
2 gallons fine grade peat moss
.13 cup (1.04 oz) lime
1 cup perlite
.8 cup base fertilizer
21 cup compost
Coleman's recipe callas for 10.6 cups of garden soil. This is needed for the clay to make the blocks stick together. I did not want to introduce nasties (e.g. spores, disease) from last years garden. So here I added 1/2 cup of powdered red clay. This is the clay used to make seed bombs. Be advised I am still experimenting with this.
