I'm looking for a good garden soil

I think the soil in our pots do not have enough nutrients as the plants looked undernourished. I was planning to purchase last week but I didn't get a chance to do it as there were matters to be given attention first. I'll try to look online if there are sellers in my locality that might deliver as well.

That's easy to solve and you don't have to buy soil, just make a compost pot and fill it with fruit and vegetable peels, including onion and garlic and ginger peels. Then, cover with soil, In two weeks, you have healthy soil for plants. Banana peel is best. Plus, talk to your plants every day.

I did once a compost pot but after that no more again. I will continue to do it to make use of the biodegradable wastes.

@ZedSmart Yes, compost heap for the biodegradable kitchen stuff, including ground coffee beans. It's vermiculture, too. You get to help nature. There's free starting kits at the Department of Agriculture, Circle, QC. They give free soil, seeds such as mustasa, corn, radish, et al. Call first, baka ubos na.

Mix some used coffee grinds and eggs shells to the soil, those are great nutrition for the plants.

I already placed some of the egg shells. I would like to pour the water use to wash the dishes with food residue in it but I though it will only attract flies.

@ZedSmart The eggs shells are very good, if you boil potatoes, use that water.

@ZedSmart you may order from the farmer. If not possible try making your own compost using kitchen waste then mix it with soil. You may ask from agricultural store some soil enhancers.

Can you apply fertiliser to the soil you already have? Maybe whatever you've previously grown has used up all the nutrients in the soil.

If fertilizer is applicable, I will look at the nearest farm supply store.
