Is best to let it compost for a while after you mix it IMO

yup I use coco in most soil mixes to help bulk them out a bit but as I said it's best to let the mixes compost down a bit and mature before you use the mix.

Thank you M M,. I'm very fortunate to have access two black volcanic soil, which is full of goodies when tested, I mix that with a good compost that is well broken down, but I still think it needs opening up a bit, I was considering using 65 percent soil 20% compost and 15% Coco.. or there abouts,, any thoughts appreciated

agree with mongy let it sit for a while b4 using 

 

very general rule of thumb you need a little more sulfur when using coco in a soil mix 

a little extra gypsum can help in that area but as mongy suggests , mixing compost & 

coco & leaving it to sit for a few weeks B4 use is prob all you need to do , of cause if 

you really wanted to get full on there would be a list of stuff you could add & do as long as 

your arm 

 

one of the first mixes i played with was coco & searles soil conditioner , 5 in 1 i think it was 50/50 mix 

might of added some perlite as well i think , used bottled nutrients back then , went ok indoors 

 

air in a mix is pretty important so adding some perlite or small scoria https://www.soilworx...ZBoCdRcQAvD_BwE would be handy

 

i'd prefer peat rather than coco myself , might want to checkout this write up on peat vs coco https://www.kisorgan...t's own weight.

 

also i think you'll find peat is cheaper when you buy a 220lt bale $45 https://nudgeeroadla...products_id=330

Thank you for the input, I prefer a soil mix because it is a lot easier and a lot less mucking around,.... I noticed a few grow journals from the U.S. Using 2/3 soil and a third Coco.... Years ago I was told it was a no no, I will have a go and find out for myself, thanks for your help

I often mix coco into soil mixes at about 1/3 coco. If it's fresh coco just need to watch for nitrogen deficiency as the coco uses nitrogen as it rots down into the soil
