Tips

 

Using compost -either from your worm bin or compost bin -to enrich your garden soil provides added organic matter which will both increase the water holding capacity of thin sandy or silty soil as well as provide a slow release of nutrients.

If heavy, sticky clay soil is what you have to work with,  organic matter will help open it up, allow more air and encourage earthworm activity.

 

Both forms of home produced compost will also add another magic ingredient for plant and soil health and that is microrganisms.  The total mass of micro organisms in the world is staggeringly large but amazingly, they are unseen.
