Improving Garden Soil
I have a garden which is not very good. I'm in CT and the garden gets full sun and little/no maintenance all year. The soil seems very dry and sandy and in the summer, it is so dry that it is dusty. I have planted Black Eye Susans and Phlox thinking that they would spread but neither seems to be doing well and neither is really spreading. I also have some lilys as well. Is there anything that I can buy to put on the soil to improve it this spring before the plants come up or is there any special fertilizer I could put out. I really would like the BE Susans and Phlox to spread and think the soil is my problem. I'm one of those old fashioned people who would like the garden full of flowers for weed control rather than using mulch. Thanks for the help. G.
