    It's not the regular Miracle Grow Potting Mix, it's the Miracle Grow Seed Starting Potting Mix.

    It's actually quite good to read about some trials that have been done before about closer spacing. .I've been discussing this with springheal (phil) for the last few days..as we have quite limited space..last year I grew them close (v.g) some as close as15cm..and still got good leaf as the plants work around each other..so this year I'm trying a number of growing distances on all different types..even wrapper types. .so I'll see how things turn out at the end of this growClick image for larger version.

    Re: Tell me about float tray systems

    I will be looking for compost for my float trays in a few days I need some advise
    from what I understood the right compost for float trays is mainly pure peat moss mixed with vermiculite or Perlite right?
    nothing else? should I ad some Earthworm humus to the mix?
    I my mind the proper mix should be made of 75% pure peat moss + 25% of vermiculite am I right?
