    I must've had it backwards. I knew ashes affected the soil one way. M-Gro was used as it became a garden. It wasnt really planned. I just started turning over the dort one day and wham. Plant after plant was slowly brought in. I really prefer adding organic amendments. Thats what my cannabis grows in. M-Gro was good for fruit production as it rocked. Yet as you mention what about by products and leaching in to the soil. Next year maybe different. I prefer heavily amended soil so i dont need to tend to it as much. Maybe a top dress after a bit.

    No worries @Patient puffer

    Check that thread that I linked to

    Hugelkultur just may be the thing you are looking for if you want a soil you don't have to tend to. Built right, it requires very little water. Here is mine from last year. I tore it down earlier this spring and wished I hadn't. We had a unusually dry spring and summer here in the PNW.

    You can grow cannabis and veggies side by side with no special soil needed. (with a few exceptions.) Throw in some companion planting to bring in beneficial insects along with a compost pile for indigenous microorganisms, and life becomes much easier for you and your garden.



    Do you have a compost pile going? Vermicompost? Very essential in the larger scheme of things.
