<"He did">, he used <"John Innes No.3">, and that has lime (CaCO3) added during processing . Also you don't know the origin of the "loam" component (but it is usually the soil riddled from potatoes (or Sugar beet) during processing) is with JI mixes.im sure Tom had this problem in one of his journals?
What is your garden like (if you have one?). I always PYO my soil.and want to put a bit of soil in ... what would everyone reccomend? i want to create soft acidic conditions so i can keep some Apistos
sorry, i guess i worded it poorly, my tap water is pretty soft, however im worried about a substrate driving up hardness, im sure Tom had this problem in one of his journals?
I should also have said that if you aren't too far away <"Peter Clarke"> is in Chesterfield, and he should be able to advise you (and he should have a range of species available). If you NW Manchester then Pier or Leyland Aquatics might be an option.want to create soft acidic conditions so i can keep some Apistos
