I plan to grow some tomato plants in pots in My Green House. I am wondering what mix of garden soil and compost is recommended. I have both home and commercial compost. But will need to get more garden soil.

We do not recommend specific brands. The potting soil, simply, serves as a base with drainage. This is because potting mixes contain perlite, peat, and other quick draining materials that will help lighten up the compost.

Your compost should be a good organic mix from a trusted source.
