Make Your Own Potting Soil

Mix your own potting soil. Most garden centers sell peat moss in large bags or bales, perlite, and bags of topsoil and compost if you need them too. Adjust the proportions to suit the needs of the plants you are potting.

Very good idea.
We can also add little things like blood meal, bone meal, greensand, etc. to boost the nutrient value of the soil.
