This is a quick update on my gutter system. Because my gutters lack the ability to hold water long, I’ve decided to add some Peat Moss to my soil mix. The gutters are not very deep and so the soil drys out quickly, making watering a choir.
Peat Moss absorbs and holds water and nutrients longer
This soil mix contains:
3 parts sawdust
2 parts peat moss
1-2 part sand
1 part perlite
I mix my batch together depending how it looks and feels. Adding more of this, and a little of that. Make sure to keep the soil wet as you mix it and wear a mask.
