    hi :)

    I have been asking this question alot aswell...my answere was always to buy a soil with no nutes...

    BuT i have found a solution for all uk people... it includes mg.. but it works fine.

    Get a bag of MG and a bag of Germination soil from any garden centre.

    mix MG 70% with GERMINATION SOIL 30%.. perfect and it worked fine :)

    If you wanna use this for the actually seedling and germination .. then =

    Fill the bottom with MG (75%) and the top half GERMINATION SOIL (25%)
    So the seed is in the germniation soil, and when seedling it starts to get some MG in it.

    When transplanting into bigger pots, use the first mixture :)

    Hope you will have a good grow with this :)

    ive just been using miracle grow potting compost. think i got it from focus or homebase. i know some people dont like it, but it works fine for me...easy if you dont want to mess around with fertilizer, but gets complicated (as i found out ) if you want to add fert later as its already got fert in it.

    I use Fox Farm Happy Frog and I love it.
    Ocean Forest or Light Warrior would work really well too.

    NEVER NEVER NEVER use miracle grow on its own. It will nute burn your babies till they die. i learned it the hard way on my first grow. :( .

    B&Q's compost mixture has many mites in it. I learned that the hard way after transplanting the fully recovered nute burned babies into the B&Q's.

    Fox Farming Happy Frog i have heard very good things about that :)

    But still i use my mixture because you never have to buy any ferts for your entire grow :) = less money + less hastle

    Thanking about it, i think on my next grow i will use the germination mixture for the seedling and then on the transplant use 50%Fox Farming Happy Frog50%Miricle Grow .... I think this will give many good results!

    I will make a grow log after i finished investigating LST + Topping.

    I hope this helps :)

    Forget about garden centres, buy a specialised brand like Canna or Foxfarm, these are especially suited for cannabis. If your a new grower just pick up some John Innes or a store made potting compost, just about anything will do, what you shouldn't do is mix soils because you will without doubt get high quantitys of one or more elements and hotspots in the soil. MG is fine too use buy itself, do not mix in or add anything to it. Its better to use just one type of commerical soil so that you can add whatever supplements necessary instead of 'mixing this with that'.
