Most of us struggle with the soil in our gardens. We find it too wet, too dry, unhealthy, lacking life AND our plants aren’t growing!
In this episode I’ll share simple tips for understanding soil types, how to improve it and what to add to build a healthy layer of soil to grow a healthy garden.
The good news is ALL soil types can be improved, even the unhealthiest of dirt!
Let’s start from the ground up…
Wherever you are located and whatever style of garden you have, follow simple methods to create healthy dirt to grow a healthy garden.
If you’re struggling with growing plants, pests in the garden or underproductive crops then consider building up your soil and you’ll notice a huge change in the health of your garden!! http://soiltosupper.com/a-thriving-garden/

Through my studies in Horticulture and Permaculture Design I’ve gained skills to create amazing gardens, and through the years I’ve developed simple methods to save time and money!
In this episode I share my simple methods for creating a new garden or for revamping existing gardens.
Here’s the simple steps I’ve covered…
“Dream BIG but start small. Make gardening a pleasure not a chore!”
Then create gardens by following a ‘no-dig’ method, set up an ‘in-garden’ compost system, plant trees and shrubs. Find links to these methods below.
Consider growing herbs, flowers and leafy greens. When potting use THE best potting mix you can buy and add extra fertiliser to feed plants long term.
Also choose plants suitable for your climate and the current season and grow plants from seeds, seedlings or established plants.
Follow organic gardening methods, feed the soil not the plants, harvest foods regularly and observe everything going on so you can support your garden’s growth. Keep a garden kit on hand with all your favourite tools, equipment and organic garden products to save time when heading out to the garden!
