I know your pain of bad dirt,
The last load we got still smells...
Like musty, water, pond, swamp....
I don't know, can't put my finger on it...
Wasnt' too happy with it either,
just won't order any more from there... :p
It's always okay to give them a shot or two
of fertilizer's if you like...
Just find one with a high middle number on the container...personal fav is Schultz Plus 10~60~10.
The middle number is for your flowering and fruit producing number..
I don't know if you've been getting this second time around heat wave we've been gettting,
but always keep your soil/dirt moist before applying any fertilizers...
and do it early in the morning before the sun
rays beat down on the leaves, you want it to
have time to dry on the leaves..
And you can't go wrong by working into the soil
at the end of the season with some Alfafa Meal,
Bone and/or Blood Meal, Compost, Manures'..etc..
And a cover crop does excellant for your soil as well... Like a red clover, winter rye, etc..
To cover the soil, *the clover will put nitrogen back into your soil via the roots and then you can till it into the soil in the spring
"Green~Manure"....****just let it sit for about *I think* 4~6 weeks to decompose before planting
