I spent so much time on my veggie patch last year and just didn't see the spectacular results I was hoping for. This year I've been doing a lot more research to try and get my plants the right nutrients so I can actually get some fresh veggies this year. There is something so tasty about vegetables that are freshly picked from the garden, compared to something you buy in a supermarket and sits in a fridge. I'm improving how I plant them, how I fertilise them and hopefully I'll reap a bumper crop. Read along to see if I do!

The ideal garden soil will consist of a mix of sand and clay, which will make it easy to dig and allow good water drainage. However, most gardens don't have perfect soil for growing plants, shrubs and vegetables. Understanding what type of soil you have can help you make decisions about what to plant in your garden and decide whether to work with what you have or introduce additional soil into your garden to create a growing medium that's suitable for a wider range of plants.
