Michael is the owner and founder of the Los Lunas based Soil Secrets, and is a master of soil composition. Here are four surprising proclamations to consider:
- Liquid fish fertilizer is bad because of chemical additions used to make it “safe”
- Mushroom compost is bad because of its calcium-producing tendencies.
- Chemical acidifiers are bad because they create more salinity.
- Overusing compost is bad because it tends to boost PH.
There were numerous others which I don’t remember. I AM NOT suggesting that we immediately throw everything away and obey the gospel of St. Michael, and yet… Michael magic potions are available from his nursery, as well as his potting soil for $7.00 a bag.
