The Dollar Stretcher Review

My take on articles and ideas presented on Dollar Stretcher.

Make Your Own Potting Soil

Well, I hate to write about the same topic twice (not really), but some of the articles in the coming week's Dollar Stretcher really got me going - about spring and gardening, seeds, plants, dirt... that sort of thing.

There are some really good ideas in those articles, so be sure and take a look.

One thing I didn't see mentioned was how to make sterile potting soil. One article mentioned using dirt straight from the garden and I've done that. It works, but it has its problems.

You can kill weed seeds and anything else in plain old garden dirt by putting it in a metal or glass container and heating it to at least 250 degrees for a half hour. You won't have to worry about pulling up the baby seedlings along with the weeds and you won't have to worry about bugs crawling out of the ground in your seedling containers.

It's simple and easy to do, so why are you buying potting soil? '
