    Hi Woody & welcome to Gardeners Corner,

    Good bit of John Innes compost always goes down well, they do different mixes, known by their numbers so it depends what you're planting.

    You could also put some moisture retaining balls in there, you get them from nurseries & will slow release water to the plant roots.
