pro mix number four mixed with half a large bag of perlite for good drainage, I am not usually a buyer of bagged material, but the grower from the moshav in israel was convinced if we are to have success this is what we are to use

soak time 24 hours, these cuttings arrived at my front door about 72 hours from Israel, to Miami, to my house in Tx, not bad... the first batches came into Houston where they sat for 5 days or more :angry: , started using a broker out of miami and the wait time drops from 12 days to 72 hours?!?!?!? whats up with that houston?

Tad, those are some great pictures showing your greenhouse from start to finish! I have a couple of questions though. In post #14 I see a trench, about a foot inside the wall posts. Is this for drainage or an EPA requirement to catch runoff? Also, I see that your benches seem to have a perfectly good wooden board base, to set plants on, but you have added a wire covered bench above that. Is there a good reason for that?
