What do I mix into my own bonsai soil? I have vermiculite, peat moss, compost, topsoil and I will pick up some more perlite soonish. Can I mix food in the mix too? I have bone meal, Talborne seedling food, 2:3:2, and Seagrow (liquid). I also have macadamia shells, pebbles and gravel for planting.
Do I keep up potting my seedlings or do I rather put them in a shallow dish to prevent the roots getting very deep?
We had a charity sale yesterday and one of the things donated was a set of dishes that I really didn't realise were cast iron and enamelled and they would have made perfect bonsai planters! Only by the time I realised they were being purchased. I underpriced them too! So miffed.
