If you are one of many growers that use soil I have some very inexpensive advice that will help you grow healthy plants with improved yields.
It may sound very simple, but the first step in growing in soil is growing your soil. Healthy soil grows healthy plants. Using organic methods or chemical nutrient lines, you still couldn’t grow a garden in the desert.
Simply put, your plant receives all of the “food” it needs to grow through its roots. In order to get this “food” you need a solid healthy root structure and nothing helps to promote root growth like good healthy soil. Start at the bottom. The soil you place in that pot is the cornerstone in your plant’s foundation.
An excellent component in any “soil recipe” is worm castings or vermicompost to be specific. When people hear worm casting or vermicompost most folks have no idea what it is. I will tell you – WORM POOP!
