Sandy Soil


Anonymous added on March 16, 2011 | Answered

I live in NC where the soil is very sandy. Any ideas on what kind of plants I should plant? How about using planters instead of putting them in the ground?

Growing your plants in containers is also a good alternative, as long as the containers provide adequate drainage.
