Recently spent a lot of money on landscaping my garden.  An area which is to be a vegetable patch had top soil laid by the landscaper.  It appears to be very poor quality  and stony. Plants that have done well in my fathers gardener have either failed completely in mine or are extremely weak and small

Should I  get some more topsoil delivered to put on top or would it be better to remove the extremely poor quality soil and replace it.  The soil looks so poor I think it would take years of adding compost and manure to achieve anything.

thank you Ann

    I would complain to the person who supplied the poor quality stuff and ask them to remove it and replace it. It is only like buying anything else, you are entitled to be given material which is fit for purpose and this clearly is not.
