Healthy soil is the foundation of a productive garden, and one of the best ways to nourish your soil is by regularly adding organic matter. Compost for planters, aged manure, and other organic materials are rich in nutrients and beneficial microorganisms that help improve soil structure, fertility, and moisture retention.

Adding organic matter to your soil also helps stimulate microbial activity, which breaks down organic materials into nutrients that are available to plants.
