Hi Steve.


Thank you for your question.


Just like a large 15-gallon pot that you have used to plant veggies in all summer, it is always a good idea to “recondition” your soil with some new enriched soil each spring.  


I like to use a good potting soil mixed with a good fully composed soil like “Nature's Care 1.5 cu. ft. Raised Bed Soil” or Kellogg Amend and Kellogg Raised Bed Soil.

Your selection of Kellogg  products may vary depending on your location.

Enriching your soil will make your plants happier too!

Greetings Steve,

I am in total agreement with Rick you must re-energize your soil. The growing mix has been leached of all it nutrients, it is up to you to supplement and add amendments to enrich your planter beds.

Once you have turned your beds and added fresh new soil, as Rick suggests, I recommends that you make a schedule to supplement nutrients as the season goes on. Check out these organic fertilizers that will help the plants thrive. Click on the links below watch and read the testimony of gardeners that applaud these products.

Alaska Fish Fertilizer and Soil Power will enhance soil condition and promote healthy plants and an abundant harvest!

So glad to read that you are planning ahead, and thinking spring!
