How to Prepare your Garden

Before you even buy a plant its important to get familiar with your soil and sun/shade factors.  

Clay or Sand - Moist or Dry ?  Check out the condition by observing what else grows well.

If its clay you will need to break up the soil and add Gypsium or a breaking agent.  It will then allow drainage.  It its Sandy had some good composty material and work through.  Delay planting for a few weeks to let nutrients do their work.

We refer to planting in ground. Future blogs will cover Pot/Planter culture. Landscaping ask us for advice.
