Soil Drainage

Air and moisture need to reach the root zone of annuals to ensure their health and growth. How well the soil drains depends on its composition. Clay soil tends to drain slowly. Sandy soil drains rapidly. Both can be improved with the addition of Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss.

I lealthy garden soil should contain approximately one-third peat moss. Before planting, apply two to four inches of this soil amendment over the existing soil. Till or mix all materials thoroughly to a depth of eight to 12 inches.
