I always ask people what comes to mind when they think of gardening.The end result – the vegetables, or the flowers – are always what they mention. And that’s not wrong… why bother to garden if we can’t look forward to a bountiful harvest? But I always encourage people to first think “soil.” Soil is the foundation of your garden, and your vegetables and your garden will only be as healthy as your soil. My passion is building soil, and although I’m mainly a vegetable gardener, the same principles hold true for flower gardening.

A garden with poor soil may produce fruit, but that fruit can’t possibly contain the nutrients, or taste as good, as fruit grown in soil that has provided all that is needed for its health. And plants grown in healthy soil have less problems with disease and pests.
