Back to the Garden Goals–#5

December 30, 2009

I will learn more about soil rehabilitation and apply that knowledge to the flower beds in front of the house. Especially the one on the right as I face the house, I have lost a number of plants on the downhill end. I can only surmise that they have died due to poor soil as the plants were very healthy when planted.

  1. Read up on soil in The South Carolina Master Gardener Training Manual and my newest addition to the library The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible (non affiliate link).
  2. Check The Complete Compost Gardening Guide (non affiliate link) out of the library and read it.
  3. Apply what I have learned by Spring.
  4. Purchase a soil analyzing kit or take samples to the Cooperative Extension.
