Critical for Gardening – Get the Dirt on Soil

Do the plants in your garden reflect all of the time, attention, and hope that you invest in them? Four elements are necessary for healthy garden plants: light, water, air and soil. No amount of pruning, relocating, fertilizing, or additonal watering produces the same results as quality soil. This presentation gives you the information to ‘grow’ soil for a lush, beautiful garden.
