Zone 91941 | Samantha Goff added on September 8, 2017 | Answered

I have a raised bed with jalapeño and zucchini right now, since the gardening season is ending I want to amend my soil to have a more successful year next year. I have seen mushrooms in the garden and my plants have been wilting too. What should I do to improve the soil to make it better for next spring? Thanks!

Do try to add organic matters and lots grit; mushrooms are the sign of damp and also indicates that sun light has not been able to get through, if able to prune the shrubs around where you found mushrooms grow also will help, plants wilting might also be the indication of not enough water; by adding more grit and organic matter into your soil also will help the water go through the bottom part of the beds where the roots can grow and get enough water through out the year.
