Got dirt?? Want good soil??
What’s the difference?
Soil is the primary source of water and nutrients for plants. It also provides the physical anchor that enables plants to stand upright. If the soil is managed well, the plants will be healthy and productive, and the quality and quantity of our water supplies will be better protected. (AgriLife Extension Texas Master Gardener Handbook, pg. 2-1)
Montgomery County has many different types of soil, from sandy to clay and everything in-between.
