Going to the garden center to purchase potting mix can be a little overwhelming. With many types of products to choose from, it can be difficult to know which one will be best for the plants you intend to grow. Some are meant to be added to the garden or used to fill raised beds, while others are suitable for growing in containers or pots. Garden soils are typically intended for use in the ground and contain minerals and organic matter.

Neem is a naturally occurring pesticide that comes from the seeds of the neem tree (Azadirachta indica). Neem trees are native to tropical forests in Burma, India and Sri Lanka. Within the tree’s native range, it has been used as a botanical insecticide for many hundreds of years. With growing interest in organic and less-toxic pesticide options, neem products have become very easy to find at most garden centers. It may be the first bottle many gardeners now reach for when they have a pest issue.
