Something that is always confusing is the massive number of soil amendment options found at nurseries. They have a multitude of similar names, and it is very hard to know which is appropriate for what you are doing. This episode is a deep dive on how to take the confusion out of the marketing language behind these products, and guide you what to look for. I categorize the amendments in these buckets:

  • Top Soil
  • 50/50 Mix
  • Compost and Humus
  • Planting Mix, Soil Conditioner, Garden Soil, Garden Booster
  • Chicken/Steer Manure
