Sandy soils are easy to work with, although will drain quickly when watered.
Rain water will often wash away nutrients which can diminish a plants chance of survival if not monitored carefully.
To improve nutritional value in sandy soil, incorporate generous amounts of moisture retentive organic matter consisting of farm manure, garden compost or leaf mould.
You may wish to apply a slow release fertiliser at the time of planting to encourage optimum health and growth.
A deep mulch of bark will also reduce water loss and keep the planting area moist.
Sandy soil is just that. It looks very much like what you would find on a beach although may be slightly darker in colour.
It is gritty to the touch and will crumble if molded into a shape.
