The differences between soil types
All soil types are not the same, and it is important that we use the correct soil type for each type of plant. The wrong choice of soil can lead to difficulties when the first rainy season comes, or flowers do not bloom because of lack of nutrients.
One of the most important things you should know about gardening is the difference between garden land, topsoil and potting soil – because if you make a wrong choice it can negatively affect the growth and vitality for your garden.
Potting soil is a soil for growing plants, herbs and vegetables in pots. Commonly used ingredients are peat, bark, sand, perlite spoil and compost in varying proportions. Commercial potatoes are balanced with balanced pH, with added fertilizer or slow-release nutrients. Despite the name of the land, potting soil has little or no soil, which is used for growing pots as it is considered too heavy for indoor plants.
Garden land is a soil similar to the dirt that exists in your garden. The soil in your garden has its own unique texture, which is composed of sand, mud, clay and various minerals. Commercial garden land has been blended with a variety of different types of soils to target a specific type of garden plant such as flowers, vegetables or herbs.
Topsoil is the topsoil, the outermost layer of the soil, usually the first 5cm to 20cm. It has the highest concentration of organic matter and microorganism, where almost all biological activity takes place on Earth. It contains four elements that make up the soil: minerals, organic matter, water and air.
Potting mix is a special blend that keeps the moisture in a pot, and provides a stable growth environment for the crop. The gourd mix may become dry, damaged, and begin to fail to retain water. Then, we will cover on a fresh organic layer, like fertilizer. This is essential, it will help to reconstruct the potting mix and help your plant thrive.
Topsoil and topsoil are mixed at least 50/50 with natural soils to maximize the yield of the crop when grown outdoors.
When used in pots, garden soil and topsoil may be too moist and rotten. They also tend to shrink and pull away from the edge of the pot when the soil is too dry. Heavy clay will become too heavy in pots, and can become like concrete.
Potting gourds used in outdoor gardens can drain well and dry too quickly. It can also prevent the flow of water from moving freely in the garden, which affects the health of the plant.
In short, potting mixes are best when grown in pots, and gardening is best for the garden. To increase the efficiency of your soil mix, you mix 2/3 potting soil with 1/3 of the fertilizer.
