Plants for Sandy Soil

Lees verder

Check out our large range of plants that like sandy soils

One of the problems caused by sandy soil is the formation of a hard pan about a foot below the surface of the soil, this is caused by clay, humus and iron being washed through the soil and settling to form a waterproof layer called 'pan'. If you dig down deep with a fork you can check to see if a pan is present, if it is, break it up for better drainage.

Plants for a sandy soil are often also plants that will thrive in coastal areas, in order to have a good water buffering and to hold fertilizer in the top soil, we advise improving the top soil each spring with a compost layer in combination with some organic fertilizer like manure or mushroom compost.
