PREPPING YOUR SOIL
Tips for your soil
- For new gardens, use loamy soil that has good water retention. You can purchase an organic fertilizer to add into your soil for extra nutrients, or you can add in nutrients yourself! Cutting a banana into small pieces and adding it into your soil is a fun activity to give your plants an extra boost. If you have a compost pile already, add your compost mixture into your soil!
- For planting in an older garden, clear out debris from your previous growing season. Till and rotate your soil to break up the compacted dirt. Add compost and fertilizer to your soil to promote the health of your plants.
