what exactly is rich soil. I have hibiscus and need to know what kind of soil they need.i live in upstate south carolina
"Rich", when it comes to soil, means it has a lot of organic matter, which is stuff like humus, compost, peat moss. Soils rich in organic matter are dark in color, loose, well drained, oxygen-rich, and fertile. that's why they're so good for plant growth. You can either amend soil by tilling in lots of humus, or you can build a raised bed and bring in top soil (or "black dirt" as it is sometimes called), which is definitely "rich". Topsoil isn't good for containers though. In pots, use a standard bagged potting mix.
