How To Improve Sandy Soils.

July 1st, 2016 · No Comments

How to improve sandy soils the solution is to add loads of organic matter such as well rotted compost or farm yard or horse manure or ideally spent mushroom compost that’s been used to grow mushrooms in and is a bye product of this process.
The reason spent mushroom compost is ideal is that it contains lots of chalk with counteracts the acidity of the sandy soil,in the case of the other options about i.e horse manure etc this is often quite acid to start with so its ideal to add some lime when adding to a sandy soil.
The organic matter has the effect of adding humists to the soil that help retain water and increase organic mycoryzia activity in the soil which adds the plants.
