Looking after your soil will help you to grow healthy plants. This workshop will enable you to develop an understanding of soil, when to dig or not dig and learn ways to improve your soil to successfully grow fruit and veg in your garden. Their gardeners will discuss the different soil types and when and how to cultivate or dig your growing area. They will also cover composting and help you get started making your own at home.
