Best Soil or Soil Mix for Greenhouse.

Could I get some advice about soil types for seed starts in the greenhouse. I am getting ready to get started and I was wondering what people here go with. Thanks

I use a seedless seed starting mix. I've found Pro-mix to be very good.

If you haven't already started your seeds, and you are planning on planting them the 3rd weekend in May, I think you are little behind schedule for starting your seeds. Most seeds need to be started 8 weeks before you are planning on planting them.

But with regards to your fertilizing question, you won't need to give any seedlings fertilizer, giving your short time frame. Just remember that you will have to harden-off your seedlings before you actually plant them in the ground.
