I used to mix 2/3 perfect loam soil and 1/3 potting mix for my dad's 
container tomatoes.  

Last year I mixed some clay soil with potting mix (1:5 - 1:10 ratios 
depending) for all my pots including houseplants.  I have had *much* 
better luck with this mix than with straight potting mix of any 
variety.  Works better than using the water absorbing gel polymers,
