Can I plant in a mix of sandy soil and field dirt next to my gate?

Great question!

You are in zone 7 – it’s a great zone with lots of plant choices. A hibiscus would be lovely planted next to the gate. Yes, you can mix field dirt with your sandy soil to create a good spot for it to grow. I’m not certain about adding Miracle-Gro potting soil to your other soil mix. Though, I don’t suppose it would hurt anything.

Thanks for writing!
