In this day and age, the most important thing for home gardeners to grasp is what media (“soil” type) they are using to grow plants and how cultural practices in the garden relate to each type. Container mix, potting soil, soil conditioner, garden soil, raised bed mix, soilless mix, organic compost, and bulk soil are just some of the confusing names of materials that gardeners use. 

More and more home gardeners are turning away from planting in their native soils and buying soil type products instead. Let’s discuss what soil really is, how to enhance it for what you’re growing and define the content and uses for all these other types of bagged and bulk products.
