Sandy Soils

Sandy soil is, as the term implies, composed largely of sand, and is the reverse of clay soil. So, this type of soil also need the treatment. It should be handled carefuly and kept as compact as possible. The use of a heavy roller, as frequently as possible, will prove very beneficial. Sowing or planting should follow immediately after plowing, and fertilizers or manures should be applied only immediately before.

If you have clay soil nearby, it can be applied as you would manure in addition to sandy soil and that will made mixture into excellent garden soil. You just have to plow the garden in the fall and spread the clay soil on evenly, than harrowing it in the spring. The result will be as beneficial as that of an equal
dressing of good manure and will be permanent.

If you want to make better soil, you could also use organic manures, especially green manuring. Fertilizers, on sandy soils should be applied only immediately before planting, or as top and side dressing during growth.

Sandy soil in the garden will produce early and quick results, and is especially good for growing melons, cucumbers, beans and a number of the other garden vegetables.

- A Complete Guide to Growing Healthy Plants

By creating a healthy garden and lifestyle you will regain energy levels, help restore your immune system and give yourself and your family the best chance of living long, happy &  healthy lives.


Over countless centuries gardeners have been keen observers of nature, noticing how plants perform depending on their surroundings. When people discovered combinations that worked well or observed the relationship a particular plant had with certain insects, their experiences were passed on to the next generation. 

Laboratory research can now prove that certain plants contain insecticides. There are many proven examples of plants that benefit others, such as French Marigolds that can be used to clear the ground of nematodes. The nematodes are attracted to the roots of the Marigold where they are unable to breed. The next generation of nematodes are greatly reduced or eliminated. This is an effective method of protection for a crop susceptible to nematodes - such as tomatoes - especially if the Marigolds are planted heavily in an area a season before planting the desired crop.
