seed and propagation medium other than peat?
Does anyone here use some medium other than peat based mixes for seed starting and cuttings? It is an import where I live and, of course, does not renew itself as fast as we harvest it. Coir is also an import and expensive.
My own compost is full of all kinds of seeds and I don't make enough of it anyway. If you live in a city that does composting, have you used that for seed starting? Or have you tried a local commercial compost that has been made largely from trees and yardwaste? How about leaf mould you've made yourself? I do pick up scads of leaves, but an unsure how much it would take to get a decent volume of leaf mould.
