Feeding Time: The Best Products for Amending Your Soil

As planting time approaches, it’s the perfect time to amend your soil. This practice improves the overall condition of the soil, enhances its ability to support plant roots, and encourages healthy, robust growth–that’s a whole lotta words to say: it’s good for your grow. Amending in the winter gives your soil more time to establish beneficial microbial networks and recharge with essential nutrients so you’ll be ready to welcome your new plants in the spring. 

If you’re ready to set your plants up for success, check out these products that work together to kick your soil into shape:
