GARDEN SOIL TYPE
I'm currently preparing my flower garden for planting and was wondering what type of soil mix do you recommend. The past couple of years I've been using Earth's Finest Compost Peat Humus combined in one bag. The flowers I plant are : Lantana, Turk's Red Cap, Hibiscus, Bougaville, Marigold, Pansy, Penta,Snapdragon, Petunia, Dianthus, and Portulaca. My options are (from Lowe's) : Organic Compost, Peat Humus, Cow Manure, and Cow Manure/Compost combination. Is what I'm already using as good or better than these other options? If not, which one is better? Do you have another recommendation not listed here? Thanks a lot for your time and consideration !! Reggie Johnson

What you've been using is fine. Have the plants thrived using this mixture? Most plants need a well-draining soil and that is one of the top considerations.
