Soil for vegetable and flower beds


I see all kinds of soil sold at the garden centre. What do you recommend to enhance a vegetable garden and what kind of soil to top up flower beds? Black earth? Manure? 4 in 1?
Topsoil? If manure, what kind?


Thank you for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners regarding appropriate soil for flower and vegetable beds. Good soil is certainly a key factor in growing plants well.
