Understanding and caring for a garden’s soil is essential for helping plants to thrive. A plant’s nutrition, growth, and ability to endure environmental conditions all depend heavily on the soil in which it’s growing. Discover how soils differ in texture and structure, physical and chemical properties, and fertility. Learn how a soil’s pH and organic matter affect plant growth and how to work with the soil in your garden to get the best results.
