  Soil mixes

I'm interested in soil mixtures too. The plants I buy usually have some
sort of bark material in them. Speaking from a hobbyist point of view, the
only bark-like materials I can ever find are pine or cypress (which is a
pine, perhaps?) used for decorative mulching.
What is this bark growers use, and is it available on a retail basis?
My apologies to Dewey Fisk, who told me what he uses.... I should have
written it down.

Dolomite is available in both pelletized and powder form. If available the
pelletized is better for one thing there is less waste to wind. Remember too
that dolomite is inactive for about 30 days but lasts 6 mos. Joe
