The best thing you can do is to start by adding compost to the soil and mixing it in about 6-8 inches deep. I would start with about 2 or 3 inches of compost and after that add an inch once a year. Make sure the area gets plenty of sun as most flowers and vegetables need at least 6 hours to do well. Fertilize lightly with a turf type fertilizer (not a weed and feed) at a rate of one cup per 50 square feet of surface area. Do this before you plant and mix it into the soil. Then fertilize again about 2-4 weeks after planting. Water the fertilizer in well.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
