When it comes to growing plants, you may think that dirt is dirt.
But if you’d like your plants to have the best chance to grow and thrive, you’ll need to choose the right type of growing media depending on where your flowers and vegetables are growing. Potting soil is the best soil for containers, as it gives the right texture and moisture retention for growing plants in a small space. Hydroponic growers often choose coco coir or rockwool. Regardless of your preference, choosing the best growing media is essential for a healthy, thriving garden.
