Q.I Live In Ibiza And The Only Soil Available To Buy Is Universal Substrate.

Zone 8-10 | Anonymous added on May 28, 2024 | Answered

Where I live I can only buy Universal Substrate and don’t have a lot of success with potted plants on my balcony. I don’t know how to give my plants the type of soil they need. Or which plants to keep using this limited type of soil.

From what I've read, this type of soil is fine for all general gardening applications. You do need to add fertilizer that is appropriate for your plants. If fertilizer isn't available you can start a compost pile.
