Answer: You can make your own potting soil rather than purchasing soilless mix. It is important to mix organic matter into garden soil before using it or it will dry out too quickly and be hard to water. To make your own, mix one part peat moss (or compost), one part garden soil, and one part clean coarse (builder's) sand by volume. Mix well and then fill your containers. Good luck with your garden!
