That's a good mixture as long as the plants like acidic soil. Peat moss also retains water well, so be careful about over watering even when the very top of the soil appears dry.

Nothing better than making your own potting soil for cheap!
If your stoked on that stuff, try the cocco peat. It rehydrates better, and is neutral PH.
