Answer: Sandy soil drains quickly but it doesn't hold nutrients or moisture so plants typically suffer, especially during the summer season. To improve the soil, incorporate some organic matter (compost or aged manure) prior to planting this spring. After you have finished planting, spread more organic matter over the bare earth around the plants. Dig this mulch into the soil at the end of the season. By repeating this process on an annual basis you will eventually build your soil up into rich, loamy soil instead of sand. Best wishes with your garden!
