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.
This article from the University of Minnesota Extension https://extension.umn.edu/how-manage-soil-and-nutrients-home-gardens/amending-soils-perennial-beds provides excellent information and a step-by-step guide to amending clay and sandy soils.
