How Much Compost Should I Use?
(Huber Heights, Ohio)
I have a garden space that is approximately 150 square feet that I have worked for about 20 years. I use a tiller and turn 20 pounds of 12-12-12 inorganic fertilizer into the space in the spring and 40 pounds of lime in during the fall.
Throughout the season, I use MiracleGro. I have never used compost. However, I have been doing some research this season and intend to turn compost into the space this spring. I will then use Espoma brand organic fertilizer through the season. Perhaps, I’ll start my own compost pile next fall but until then, what is the best compost to buy and how much should I use?
Thanks very much!
