soil solutions
I recently planted lavender and geraniums, with the cold weather also a factor i am just curious if i need special ingredients to keep them healthy besides some potting soil, and plant food? I live in Central Valley California, weather is cold and foggy these months.

Thanks for writing! Most herbs do really well in just about any kind of soil as long as the soil doesn't stay too wet.

If your area experiences a lot of moisture, I'd amend your soil with organic matter to help it drain or grow your plants in raised beds or mounds to help keep their roots from staying too wet.

Good luck!
