    Collapse Digging for Success

    American households spend an average of $500 per year on garden plants. Additional labor goes into the planting and tending of the garden. But, gardens can bear fruit in many ways (pun intended!) They can provide food, exercise and shade for your family, shelter for wildlife, beauty for your neighborhood, and so much more – so they are worth the investment.

    But sometimes a plant fails. It could be a bad purchase. Or the plant is located in the wrong place. Even the characteristics of the soil where the plant is growing affect its success. The American Society of Agronomy (ASA) and Soil Science Society of America (SSSA) have developed videos to help homeowners and landscapers protect garden investments.

    Digging for Success covers the basics of digging the right type of hole. Location, and space requirements should be considered first. Then the correct size hole for the type of plant you are growing is important. However, the most important factor is soil compaction. Clay Robinson, a soil scientist, and education manager for the societies explains how to determine if your soil is compacted, and various ways to improve your soil for your plants success.

    Clay Robinson, PhD, is an avid gardener who is a Certified Professional Soil Scientist (CPSS) and Certified Crop Adviser (CCA). He has more than 30 years of experience in the field.

    Planting for Success covers a pre-purchase “four-point inspection” that can save you some heartache before you buy. Additionally, he reviews steps to prepare your plant for the shock of transplanting – and that a bit of pruning before transplanting can lead to a more robust plant in the long term.
