Can I plant a salsa garden in sandy soil? Will it grow?

I have plant beds in my yard at my new house,

And I want a small garden.

I’ve never planted anything in my life, so I don’t know anything.

Will tomatoes and peppers grow out there?

The soil is very sandy.

Do you have any advice/experience with gardening like this?


You’re probably better off adding soil. For tomatoes and peppers, anyway. You can get good garden soil at a home center. Or even pot them. Tomatoes need a 5 gallon pot. Peppers can deal with half that


I’ll look into potting them.

Does anything grow well in sandy soil by itself?

my caseworker told me sandy soil is great for roses. but i don’t know if that is true.


just researched online. it says sandy soil is not great for roses, because the water drains too quickly. mine is a mix of soil clay and river sand, maybe that is what my caseworker was talking about.


Tomatoes grows best in a self watering planter / pot. Try too google “self watering plants / pots”

You can make one yourself.

It’s also good for basil and peppers.

I have good succes and lot’s of tomatoes, basil, peppers, every summer.
