Our dear humus

So why can't we find humus, unlike compost, in bags in garden centers? They would however be robbed quickly despite a very expensive price.

The first is a generic term that can contain anything https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humus

The second has become a regulated commercial product which must meet the NF U 44-551 standard. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terreau

Nobody answered you because Wikipedia is your friend : Wink:

Humus is not a garbage can, far from it.
The compost on the other hand can be one, and not the least.

No, but Izy is like that, it suffices for a product to be NF labeled (he had done the job with Teflon ...) for him to be happy, confident and serene. This is "the NF U 44-551 standard", therefore necessarily better than your "humus" with walnut.

yes humus is a generic term, it's like you want to buy from the river ...
you can buy sand, fish water ... but you cannot buy a piece of river in store ...
so you can buy a component of humus, like potting soil, sand or clay but not humus ...

Humus is no longer a garbage can, but initially it is :P

Well your humus, you have it analyzed and if it falls into one of the 29 categories of the standard, you can use it or market it in the corresponding category, enrich it with N, P2O5, K2O or complete a deficiency : Lol:

I'm not going to take the cabbage with a standard on which I sit or with someone who accumulates the posts by the thousands, the fight is illegal.
I am only 1 modest beginner, I started my garden a little more than 6 months ago.
