If you want to grow strong, healthy plants, the first step to doing so is the material you’re planting them in. At Wagners Garden Centers, we offer a wide variety of soil and planting materials to help you foster the growth of anything from the most finicky orchid to the hale and hearty marigold. Choosing the right soil for the grass, herbs, seedlings, and flowers you’re growing means choosing a variety that best facilitates the delivery of water and nutrients to whatever you plant.
In order to choose the best soil for what you’re planning to grow, we recommend doing a pH test first to determine it’s acidity on a scale of zero to fourteen. Most plants thrive in soil with a pH between six and seven, though not all varieties are the same. The best soil is formulated specifically to address the needs of your individual plants, customized to their biology, which is why Wagners carries a wide variety of soils and growing medias:
