Now you might be asking, “what’s in my soil?”
Remember that potting soil and gardening soil is different simply because you will be eating food from the gardening soil.

Note: after watching this video, I would like to point out to those interested in making their own soil that if you add too much phosphorus it will inhibit the growth of the mycorrhizal fungi.
