Building Good Garden Soil

Saturday, November 9, 9 - 11 am


Everything starts with the soil, and late fall / winter is a good time to begin building your soil for spring gardening! Learn the characteristics of basic soil types, and how to analyze your own soils. Soil types and characteristics, amendment techniques, drainage, and more are discussed, and a garden walk shows you how Lewis Ginter horticulturists remediate different parts of the Garden’s soil. Receive a soil test kit and instructions to start you on the quest for the perfect soil for your garden!
