The Importance of Good Soil

In our Container Gardening workshops we always talk about the importance of soil.  One just can’t go out to the vegetable garden and shovel a container full of heavy soil and expect to grow beautiful, light flowers.  Annuals, mainly grown in containers, need a lighter soil, similar to what they are grown in.  Our container […]

In our Container Gardening workshops we always talk about the importance of soil.  One just can’t go out to the vegetable garden and shovel a container full of heavy soil and expect to grow beautiful, light flowers.  Annuals, mainly grown in containers, need a lighter soil, similar to what they are grown in.  Our container mix is called “Veranda” and it is sold in 30L bags and in 2.2 ft compressed bales.

 

But, what do you do if you are adding soil to the flower bed or vegetable garden?  Forget about black earth.  Yes, it is inexpensive, but it is devoid of much nutrient; it’s great for filling in a hole or casting over grass seed, but not much else.  At the minimum, we suggest you use Triple Mix.  It is a combo of peat moss, topsoil and manure.  It adds volume and nutrient.  We think the best of the best if the “Sea Soil”.  Kyle has coined the phrase, “jet fuel for your plants” and Fafard, the Quebec company who produces it has started using that in it’s literature!  We love it for top dressing your gardens, giving new energy to existing plants and for adding handfuls of it to the holes when planting perennials and shrubs and then casting some on top of the newly planting so when you water, the nutrient goes directly to the roots.  We also suggest handfuls of it (it is never to be used solo, it’s a soil additive) in your container plantings, herb and veg gardens.

 

Soil is very important soil is to your planting success.  An old family gardening book from 1950 had an underlined passage:  “…for every dollar spent on gardening, spend ten cents on plants and ninety cents on soil…”  A little to the extreme, but an exaggerated example of how important soil is to achieve good growing.
