    I don't know about sand. I mean I'm not saying the other dude is wrong, but I feel like I read something bad about sand. I recently used lots of perlite mixed with good organic soil/compost and some worm castings. I also threw in some bone meal because we use it on other plants on the farm. The strawberries we planted got HUGE with just a little bone meal under the soil right below the roots but not actually touching the roots. So ya just my 2 cents. I don't think you can go wrong with good stuff like perlite, compost, worm castings, etc.

    as long as you don't snag that compost from outside and bring it in!
    Northwest is the best

    soil mix

    if u got acess to a truck u can buy bulk tripple mix for about $20 a yard (a yard is allot prolly enough to last u the season atleast) then buy a big compressed bundle of peat moss n some perlite thats the best cheapest way in my opinion n u can add any nutrients u prefer to it
    Blaze allways
