Fertilizers & Amendments

The clay soil in our area of Zone 5b can be compact and may drain poorly. Plant roots need air and water. The best care you can give your new plants is to improve the soil. Fertilizers supply nutrients to the soil. Amendments improve the condition of the soil so it absorbs and retains nutrients and water more efficiently. Both fertilizers and amendments affect and benefit plant growth.
