Potting,re potting,de potting....

Hi all!
  Yesterday was great day,,cold but sunny,no wind for change,and same today.Love that kind of weather,,in winter of course.
  Started repot my pellies at end of January,now i'm very close to finish all that.Still looking for best compost possible to find in garden centers here in Ireland,so if you know good peat free one,,give me a shout. 
    Right now I find only one where is 50%/50% peat and compost(Westland John Innes nr 2 potting on compost),,adding same amount of Living green worm compost,and little bit of grit,because Westland John Innes nr 2 feels very sandy.Can see pots dry out fast.Worm compost by the way is produced here  in Ireland,in Co.Donegal
  Some photos from yesterday:
                                                    Moved my orchids in better place,

 That huge succulent plant is Kalanchoe 'Tessa',budding right now,,it have very pretty red flowers.

                I hope you can see how light in colour is John Innes compost beside worm compost.
                                                      Repotted and happy,,i hope :)
                                      Zonartic pellies doing really well in this time of year.

                                         This nursery side is almost full  today.

  1. Odd you prefer peat free compost Liga.. Here in UK we prefer to use peat based compost for our pelargoniums, but it is getting hard to find. I use a multi purpose compost with added peat, and add extra John Innes 2 and grit. I did try just the multi purpose with peat and grit (did not have any JI2 at the time) and plants were not happy. Your plants look very happy.

  2. I can add peat my self Gwen,and i have good one here.I just wish i would be able to mix my own mix.And when i will go over to UK on car i will bring you some bag of Irish peat :)
