Soils & Fertilizers
As previously mentioned, adequate watering and fertilizing are key to good garden performance (good weather helps too!).
But for certain flowers and vegetables, some soils in the Okanagan are not quite as suitable as one may wish (too much clay, not enough organics, too much sand and rock, etc). These soils will need work, by adding organic matter such as compost, manure, or wood shavings. If these products are not easily available to you, The Greenery carries bagged top soil, steer and mushroom manure, organic soil amendments, composts, mulches, granular gypsum and fertilizers in organic, liquid, water soluble, granular, and slow release form to enrich and improve any garden soil.
If you are growing your plants in pots, planters, hanging baskets or smaller garden bins, we have many different potting soil options(many of which are actually soiless). Since we do not recommend the use of garden soil in containers for reasons of poor root environment, watering problems, diseases and excessive weight, we only carry soil mixes that are sterile and adaptable to all container sizes and tailored for specific, different growing conditions and plant varieties. All of our soils come in either bags or compressed bales and can easily be transported in a car.
