Why should the potting soil be fertile?
It is the basis for plant growth, successful seeding of vegetables, for bulbs to sprout the phrase “.and make sure you’re using a good potting soil” is thrown around a lot but what does that actually mean? It means, then, that a good topsoil will “compensate” you for the effort and time you put into gardening. But how do we know when it is fertile? So here are the main features: To hold the nutrients around the roots of your plants, so that it acts as a reservoir and feeds them when the plant needs them during its growth. To provide enough air for the root crop to be able to breathe. Do not need too much water, so that the roots of the plants do not rot. Be dense enough to create support for your plants, providing anchorage for the roots to help hold the plant in place and not be uprooted by the first wind. However, it should also be light enough to allow water and air to always be present below the soil surface so that your plant roots have a balanced atmosphere to grow in and not create rotting conditions when transplanting is needed. To have a pH of 6-7.5 and to list all the characteristics on the package. Be free from harmful microorganisms and parasites. To come from natural raw materials and to contain organic matter So, since a good topsoil “ensures” the basis of plant growth and the germination of seeds, supplement it with proper care for your plants, so that you can enjoy the beautiful garden or terrace with the effort and time you spend on gardening!
