Organic Amendments in the Garden

Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Applying organic soil amendments to the garden or landscape can loosen soil, improve water infiltration, and increase long-term nutrient supply. When added to sandy soils, organic soil amendments can also improve water-holding capacity. Soils that benefit the most from organic soil amendments are those lacking in organic matter. These often include urban soils that have been disturbed during construction, landscaping and utility work. Students will learn more about the types and applications of organic amendments in the garden.
