Choose the right potting soil for your plants  

When spring announces its arrival and you are ready to transform your garden or balcony into an oasis of lushness, it is crucial to choose the right potting soil for your plants. Here are some important considerations that will help you make the best choice:

1. pH: One of the most important factors to consider when choosing potting soil is pH. Most plants thrive best in a soil with a pH value between 5.8 and 6.2. This ensures that the plants can absorb the necessary nutrients from the soil and prevent them from suffering from nutrient deficiencies.

2. Quality over price: Although it can be tempting to choose the cheapest potting soil, it is important to invest in a quality soil. An airy structure and good drainage are essential for the well-being of plants. Cheaper potting soil can have too fine a structure, which can result in a lack of oxygen for the plant’s roots and lead to growth problems.

3. Avoid sphagnum: Some potting soils contain sphagnum, which is a material extracted from moss. Although it can contribute to the soil’s structure, there are concerns about its sustainability and environmental impact. Therefore, choose sphagnum-free mulch mixtures that are kinder to the environment.

4. Natural clay pots: Finally, you should consider planting your plants in natural clay pots. These pots allow better air circulation around the roots and help regulate humidity, creating a healthy growing environment for your plants.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your plants get off to the best possible start and thrive in their new home. So put on your gardening gloves and let’s get started creating beautiful and healthy garden spaces!
