Spring Soil Preparations

Soil preparation is so vitally important this time of year.

You need to replenish nutrients and compost and any micro-organics.

With good soil you'll notice twice the size and production of blossoms, fruits and vegetables.

If you intend to put a lot of time and care into your garden, it's especially worth the effort to make sure the soil is in great condition.

A potting soil mixture with perlite, peat moss and some micronutrients should be mixed into the soil of your garden bed.

Another product to consider is called Soil Perfector. As the product states, "Successful plantings require a soil structure consisting of approximately 50% solids, 25% pore space for air, and 25% pore space for moisture. While this may be common in undisturbed forest areas, it is not the general rule for homeowners today, whose topsoil has often been stripped away. It improves clay and sandy soils and only needs a one time application. It also prevents compaction and promotes root growth. It's a soil conditioner that works permanently.

Next, you'll want a pelletized organic fertilizer and spread that into your garden bed. Then just mix it a little bit, with a rake or shovel.

You'll have a nice, rich soil to plant into. And that's also an easy condition to produce an amazing plant.
