Improving soil

We've been pottering around gardenning our flower borders for quite a long time, but have never done much in the way of putting anything back into the soil to improve it, short of emptying the spent contents of tomato grow bags (which are probably devoid of beneficial nutrients by that stage) around the beds.

What would be a suitable type of improver to use for flower borders?

Thanks in advance.


  • Thanks Verdun.

    We've got established borders.  We'll need to acquire some compost.  Our two bins won't give us enough, which I guess is the problem with a small garden which doesn't produce much organic waste.

    Try your local council for their recycled green waste - i have heard good things about it, and they will deliver in bulk

    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.
  • Thanks for that idea Chicky.  I'll see if they can do anything.
