How do you treat poor garden soil?

I've had a beautiful garden turn into a barren plot in just a couple of years.

  • Invest in some good compost! And worm casings.

    What do you want to grow? If you are growing something specific, then look up what that particular plant needs in terms of soil pH. Then to restore general soil nutrients, compost is your best bet! Ask a local farmer even for some manure to till in!

  • If you can't find a soil testing kit at your local home improvement store, check with a local garden shop to see if they have one. Once you find out what your soil needs, you can go from there in correcting it.
