Get the dirt on garden soil

By Denise Stewart

In January, the Scripps-Mesa Garden Club bloomed with orchids. This month, the members will get the latest dirt on garden soil.

At the Library Community Room at 6 p.m. on Feb. 27, the local gardeners will learn from soil expert Vicki Vollrath what it takes to keep the right chemistry in garden soil so that plants lead healthy lives.

The local gardeners have a website where they share other information about how to find success in growing vegetables, flowers, and shrubs. Look and learn from their successes at scrippsmesagardenclub.com.
