Propagating seeds- Bark chips in potting compost
Berkshire, United Kingdom
At college we watched a video about propagating seeds, the video was mostly about soil mixes.
The RHS video mentioned many times the use of bark chippings in potting mixes.
So do you use bark in potting mixes?
If so can you tell me where you get potting bark from and can you give me a recommendation?
I cannot find any small chipped bark in any of my local garden center's, only large chunky decorative/mulching bark which is obviously not intended for use in potting mixes.
The video was quite dated, early 90's i think, so have things moved on and is bark not used and other material used in its place?
