  • What is a garden myth you hear frequently which you know is untrue?
    Adding Plant Food and Fertilizer is All You Need.
  • And, what is the reality?
    There are some out there who insist that all you need to do is add plant food and fertilizer to the soil before planting, maybe fertilizing during the growing season, and that is it. While this would grow some plants, it wouldn’t be as good as it can be and eventually, the food and fertilizer will not be enough. Soil needs fresh organic material to break down and replenish nutrients. Adding fertilizer alone isn’t enough.
