Garden soil is a blend of 50% sand / 50% dark organic materials that form when plant and animal matter decay. When plants drop leaves, twigs, and other material to the ground, it piles up. This material is called leaf litter. When animals die, their remains add to the litter. Horse manure also adds to this rich dark soil. Over time, all this litter decomposes to form a nutrient rich layer that plants thrive in.
Organic potting soil is 10% sand / 90% organics. Organic soil helps your plants resist pests and disease, which reduces the need for chemicals and pesticides. Because organic soil is composed of nutrient and mineral rich materials, plants grow stronger cell wells, giving them additional protection from pests and disease.
