Who thinks about soil before they plant? In fact, it’s a really important consideration. For example, if your soil is sandy, it will drain well and possibly too quickly. Sandy soil lacks the nutrients of richer soils. Loam is great for Rhododendrons and Azaleas, but Lavender won’t thrive. The type of soil you have will dictate which plants will work best in your design.
A well-tended garden will reward you with many years of pleasure.
