I can personally attest to an aloe foliar spray being one of the things that changed the health of my plants in a matter of hours
Some things I've not mentioned that I have incorporated into the recycling/re-amending...
Dried and pulverized Horsetail @ 2 to 4 cups per cubic foot of soil
Dried and pulverized Comfrey @ 2 to 4 cups per cubic foot of soil
Sand...yes sand is critical for proper drainage and water retention.
Glacial rock dust....can work like a sand,but contains far more minerals than regular sand.
Azomite...montmorillonite clay....sort of like Bentonite
When building soil with sands and clay it is important to understand soil types in order to have a medium that can support the functions of the micro-organisms and the plants.
Here is a typical soil chart.....what kind of soil do you have?
