In general, the best garden soil should be well-draining and loose. Alberta is prone to clay soils that are quite the opposite. A rule of thumb to look for is if you can make a ball with your soil in your hands and it won’t fall apart, then there is too much clay. The other imperative for garden soil is a healthy amount of organic material. Organic material provides many of the essential nutrients that plants require for growth.
Doug’s Soil is exactly this. Loose, well-draining, and full of organic material. The looseness of Doug’s soil allows water to percolate down and through the soil, thus staying present for uptake from your plants’ roots. Doug’s Soil also contains a percentage of Doug’s Compost to further provide nutrient richness for your garden!
