I know they like it hot. Down here south of I-10, we will be in the 90* range soon enough. I did soak them overnight prior to potting them. I'm just impatient and want to have okra as early as possible.

Green tea is a first for me hearing it used a soak. But I've seen people soak them in hydrogen Peroxide for 10 minutes to kill of any pathogens, people just soaking in water, etc. Lots of different formulas/methods.


I Lied!

Online compost calculators show mixing in 4" of compost would be 5 yards for 450sq feet to mix with native soil. 6" would be best.

Personally to that I would add

40lbs lava sand
40lbs Dry Molasses
40lbs of Greensand
40lbs of Horticulture corn meal
40lbs of Expanded Shale
Some Azomite would be a real nice added bonus.

Those are +/- depending on what size bag you can find local. All pretty cheap. And again this is just my method on amendments, but it will give you some pretty kick a** soil imo.

Maybe. They should have the corn meal and molasses. If it's an awesome feed store like Boyce Feed in Hachie they would pretty much have all of it. You'll have to make some calls.

Good Natured packages most of what I listed even though most of it is not listed on their site. Give them a call and they will tell you who your local dealer is.
www.goodnaturedforall.com

Garden Variety shows pretty much all their packages.
