I carried out a small scale compost trial with 20 californicum seedlings newly deflasked in March 2001. Half of the container (left-hand side) was filled with a compost containing 1/3 Seramis, 1/3 limestone grit, 1/3 pine duff and the other side filled with 4 parts Perlite, 1/2 part composted bark, 1/2 part beech (Fagus) leaf humus. The container was planted with about 20 seedlings in a uniform manner. The photo shows results during the second growing season and it is easy to see the seedlings in the Perlite compost have done much better. The watering and feeding have been the same over the whole container and I conclude that the Perlite mixture suits my growing conditions better than the Seramis - though of course other people in different latitudes with different rainfall, may get totally different results. Its only by experimenting like this that we can find out how best we can grow these plants.
