Q.What Kind Of Soil Do I Need To Start A Brand New Greenhouse And Where Do I Get It?

Zone 30549 zone 8 | Anonymous added on January 1, 2024 | Answered

I am putting together a greenhouse kit. Where do I find dirt and what kind do I get? Do I need sterile soil? And do you have a list for a beginner that I can review? I am looking for a book or manual to keep handy and I don’t know where to start. Any help would be appreciated. thank you

I'm assuming the soil will be in raised beds or containers? If that is the case, you can use regular potting soil. It also depends on what you are growing. If the soil goes inground, you can buy bags of garden soil.

We don't make book or product recommendations, but here are links to our information on greenhouses.
