For starters, there really is nothing better for soil than compost. It not only loosens clay soils, but it helps sandy soils retain water. And best of all, it contains no petroleum-based compounds, as many commercial fertilizers do. It also suppresses plant diseases and pests. Gardens that use compost produce much higher yields of healthy fruits, vegetables and flowers. Even in the city!
