Is garden soil all that is needed in a new garden?

    It depends on the condition of your original soil and on whether the plants you're putting in have particular nutrient requirements. Our garden soil here tends to be a bit heavy on the clay side so we need to amend it. I'm not a fan of triple mix, but that's just a personal opinion. So we add manure for nutrients and peat moss to help break up the clay and give better drainage.

    Call or visit your local nursery to get more information for your area and project. Take some of your soil in a baggie to get help on what you want to grow.
