October 16, 2009, Newsletter Issue #101: Soil additives for raised gardens

Tip of the Week

Soil, important in any garden, is especially crucial to a raised bed because it is by definition finite: what you put in is what your plants will get. Plants will in time use up the nutrients contained in any soil, so start with a good base: good-quality top soil well-mixed with humus or manure. Annual top dressings of humus will keep your soil and your plants healthy.
