Tips and Facts

  • When preparing your garden start with the soil. A well-conditioned soil will ensure good growth throughout the hot months.
  • Plant roots need both water and air to stay healthy, ensuring water slowly passes through instead of stopping and rotting the soil is essential.
  • If you have clay soil in your garden, add organic matter to open up the ground.
  • Adding a handful of Gypsum when planting will help open up the ground for your new plant.
