Well... depends on whether you wanna do dig or not, and how much money are you willing to spend and how much time do you have.





I usually mix a couple of different materials in my garden soil


which includes: lucerne, come well rotted manure, lime if the garden soil is acidic, blood and bone, LOTS of peat moss or coir (fine coconut husk chips), gypsum if you have clay soil, and finally LOTS OF PREMIUM COMPOST!!!





Well if you couldn't be bothered adding so much different things in the garden, You could get away with adding lots of good compost, some well rotted manure or some blood %26amp; bone.





Another new product that has come to the market is the bio soil improver. These are manure with lost of benifical bacteria, you could try them but i believe adding the items i mentioned above is enough to improve your soil.





hope this helps!


good luck with your veggie garden!
Reply:Well composted soil would be the best overall. But if that's not available to you, a mix of topsoil, peat moss, and manure works well. And feed with a good plant food about every week or two.
Reply:It would really depend on what type of soil you already have.


I have heard great things about Miracle gro veggie and flower soil, though.
