If u get ocean forest you'll need to get an inoculant. The happy frog has it in it but u end up with a lot of nats. Plus fox farm doesn't make there own batches. I think roots is a little between but ozzidude right make your own. Check out

I am using Roots Organics Greefields, So far so good. Have used fox farm and Happy Frog in the past so far Roots Organic has the edge for me.

Thank yall for the responses. And i think I'll go with Ozzie on this one and make my own.i got a mix in mind not sure about it there is a mix of compost and cow sheet. Would it be to hot to mix like 20lbs of it into a 66lb mix of 10lbs peat humus, 20lbs of perlite,& 30lbs gardening soil and 6 lbs of blood and bone meal.i plan on letting it cook for about a week.im trying to find worm castings but to no avail.

You are going to need to let it cook for far longer than a week. Even when I make up a super soil, I use some kind of organic potting soil as a base. I would also be concerned about bringing a garden soil inside unless it has gone through a good "cook" phase. And have you put any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, etc in your outside garden soil?

I personally believe that mixture would be way too hot. I recommend that you check out some of the tried and true recipes. One of the things I have learned about organic is that it is quite complicated and if you want the soil to feed the plants you need to start out with the right stuff in the first place. Keep in mind that peat is quite acidic and perlite adds nothing to the mix except to help improve drainage. Do not overuse perlite.

I use an organic soil I get from Home Depot for my base soil. I use it in my veggy gardens, too. It is called Kellogg's Patio Plus potting soil. It carries the OMRI seal, has some other goodies in it, and is quite inexpensive at $5 for 1.5 cu ft.
