Depending on the composition of your soil determines how your garden will grow
How much sun and how much water your garden gets will determine how your garden will grow. And how much work will you put in for the care of your garden will also determine how well your garden will grow. If you put the work upfront it will be much easier to care for your garden as it grows.
The soil must have enough nutrients for your plants to strive. Clay soil is very bad in growing a garden. Clay soil prevents water from penetrating the soil and also will have poor drainage. Clay soil will deprive the plants of oxygen. Sandy soil is also bad. Sandy soil can’t hold the water long enough to be of benefit. Sandy soil will also lose most of the nutrients in the ground that is essential for the plants or vegetables to grow. Your garden will strive and grow in a balanced soil.
Not too sandy and not too much clay. The soil must be cultivated regularly, so the plants can breath and allow water and nutrients to soak down to the roots. The soil needs to be fertilized to provide food and nutrients that the plants have consumed. Mulch is good for ground cover around the plants; it not only helps in the composition of the soil but also can absorb water and keeps water from evaporating too fast for the plants to absorb.
How good your garden will strive and grow you will need loam.
Loam is the ideal mixture of soil. Even if you have sandy soil or a soil that is mostly clay you can remedy that by adding compost organic matter to achieve the right balance. You can make your own compost to condition and add all the necessary nutrients for the right kind of soil condition for your garden to grow healthy. Compost is a balance of acidic and alkaline that is not too much or too little, just the right balance.
So if anyone ask………”How does your garden Grow?” You can say …my garden grows fantastically.
