The Importance of Your Soil
Soil health has been defined as: “the capacity of soil to function as a living system”.
Maintaining the health of your soil is more than just adding fertilizer each year. Soil is composed of living organisms that help plants grow, minerals that contribute to plant growth, and organic matter that supports the living organisms and plants. Be sure to support the total health of your soil by adding organic mulch and fertilizers.
One of the most important ingredients in a soil is mycorrhizal fungi. These are tiny filaments that attach and penetrate between and within the outer cells of the roots of plants, and become extension of the roots themselves. This helps the plant by aiding in the absorption of water and nutrients while warding off bad fungi and harmful bacterial. Most plants are heavily dependent on these fungi.
