When the Garsy range of soil based, vertical garden products was first launched in Australia in 2002, we used the slogan 'the greatest innovation in gardening since DIRT!' Now, over 13 years later, we celebrate the United Nations International Year of Soil, who would have thought it? I found this very informative and easy to understand article on soil by Becca Smithers which I think is worth reading.
It explains what soil is, why it is important and why we our lives depend on it.
If you'd like to find out which kind of soil you have in your garden, Becca also has a simple little experiment you can do. What a great blog and so handy for kids too. One to watch.
