Any mix can be used. The critical ingredient is oxygen. Coarse and soft mixes should be used. Water is also important. You want living organisms to thrive inside the compost. Containers can be used to contain compost. It is also good to mix them on the ground to allow earth worms to access it. You can use it in bed preparation or on existing plants.
