I’m new to gardening and grew a lovely vegetable garden last summer so now I’m hooked! I want to start a new garden this spring, my question is this. I have raised plant beds that I used new gardening soil last year from Lowe’s. Should I replace the dirt before I plant anything this spring or should I use the same dirt? Do I add compost and can I buy that from a gardening store? Thanks!
