Soil & Fertilizer

The first step to starting your garden is having the growing medium (soil or non-soil), compost, and fertilizers right.

Here, you’ll find articles that range in topics such as the best soils and soil amendments for specific types of planting —gardens, vegetables, and herbs — to tips on the nitty-gritty of testing your soil’s pH and moisture levels and sterilizing your garden soil.

We also have blog posts on composting and how to add soil amendments to enhance your garden soil.
