Hello Everybody

Just wondering if anybody can tell me where can i find a good potting mix in delhi?

If there is no ready made potting mix available in the market, what would you guys suggest as a good home made potting mix?

 

Mixture  of : Cocopeat, Vermiculite, organic compost, perilite, some soil perhaps? in what ratios? what else is available in delhi?

 

I am a new gardener and would love any help you guys can throw my way.

 

thank you

Vermiculite is expanded silicate at high temperature. See:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vermiculite
