Soil Blocks Soil Mix

This is the soil mix recipe we use to make a soil that holds together well enough to be used for soil cubes.

Bucket used is 10 quart, or 2.5 gallon.

  • 3 buckets peat and 1/2 cup lime pre-mixed together
  • 2 buckets sand and 3 cups fertilizer pre-mixed together
  • 1 bucket garden soil
  • 2 buckets compost

Combine everything well in a wheelbarrow or large bin. If you are not using everything right away, keep the soil mix covered and moist but not dripping wet.

The recipe is easy to adjust for smaller batches.
