Plant growth depends on access to water, light, temperature, air and nutrients. Soil is vital for plant growth as it provides all of those plus a medium for plant roots. Water can come from rainfall or irrigation, and most traditional plants require a constant moist layer of soil just below the surface. Soil can usually be amended with compost, gypsum, lime and fertilisers to encourage health, growth and flowering.
