Tree & Shrub Starting Mix

Trees and shrubs need excellent drainage when planted in pots and containers. You can buy a ready-mixed blend or make your own. There are different recipes on starting mixes, one example is:

  • Peat moss/Coco Peat

  • Perlite/vermiculite

  • Sand/bark

  • Fertilizer

  • Ground limestone

If you like, you can top your mix with some garden soil.
