What type of soil does your garden have?

It is important to create a healthy soil. It is best to leave the soil alone as much as possible and add natural nutrients, such as humus and compost, in order to regain a healthy soil life. It is advisable to repeat this regularly when necessary. In this way you ensure an optimal, healthy soil. 

There are a number of different soil types. To improve your (kitchen) garden soil, you can add the following:

null

Light sandy soil

Too little moisture and nutrition

To improve, add Cytoplus and compost.

null

Heavy clay soil

Too little air and too much moisture

To improve, add Ful-Humix and coarse sand.

null

Acid peat soil

Too acidic and too little structure

To improve, add TM-7 and lime.

null

Regular garden soil

Too little nutrition

To improve, add Cytoplus.

Wat humus and humic acid does for your soil

A fertile soil consists of a healthy soil life and humic acid. Adding humic acid to your (kitchen) garden has the following advantages:

  • null
    A better soil structure
  • null
    Water is retained 4 to 6 times better
  • null
    The plant has better access to nutrients and water

A healthy soil life ensures that water can drain away easily. However, by adding humus you ensure that water is retained. In this way you can ensure proper regulation of the water management of your soil.

The origin of humus and humic acid

Humus (organic matter) is located in the top layer of the soil and is very fertile. Because humus is a collection of different organic substances, the collective name of humic substances is also used. The forming of humic substances is a very slow process, much slower than, for example, the breakdown of plant remains (to a lesser extent of animal origin) in which compost is formed. It takes a minimum of 6-12 months to make a humus-like substance like compost, but in nature the formation of a humic layer takes much longer. The origin and location of a humic layer is important for quality. The humic layer that we use for our products is more than 40 million years old and originated in a freshwater source, which is by its nature much purer than a saltwater source.

What does fulvic acid do for plants

Once you have added humic acid to your soil, there is another organic substance that should not be forgotten: fulvic acid. Fulvic acid ensures the transport of nutrients from the soil to the plants and removes heavy metals from its cells. A healthy soil is the basis for everything else you do in your (kitchen) garden; healthy growth is built on healthy soil!
