Soil: Bees Ferry compost, low in nitrogen, mix with mushroom compost from All-Seasons Mulch on Johns Island. Amend with composted horse manure or home compost as needed for organic matter and nitrogen.
Wood: Pick old shelves, ladders, furniture to make raised beds or containers for plants. Additional wood for raised beds can be obtained a number of other ways.
Seeds: At the end of each year, seed companies get rid of their stock and replace it with new stock. This old stock germinates just as well and many seed stores will give those old seeds away or at very low prices.
