Improving Your Soil

Good, nutritious soil is the basis for any plant's success. Unfortunately, what Florida gardeners have to work with is mostly sand. This fine "sugar sand" doesn't hold water or nutrients very well. But you can improve your soil with a host of Florida-friendly amendments, such as compost, manure or even worm castings.
