The Perfect Soil Recipe Master Class

The perfect mix of soil ingredients to build a thriving and productive garden.

I've said it many times - feed the soil and let the soil feed the plants. And building that healthy growing medium that will feed your plants the nutrients they need is a process that starts with the right “recipe” and quality ingredients.

Over the years, I’ve developed a mixture of elements that have brought me abundant gardening success. In this course, I walk you through how much of each ingredient to use and how and when to apply them.

Here's what you'll learn in this course:

  • The soil ingredients I use in my garden and how much of each
  • What inputs you don't want to add and why
  • How to amend your soil to keep it healthy year after year
  • How to perform a soil test and why it's one of the most important things you can do to understand and improve your soil
  • How to apply mulch to protect and insulate the soil you've built
