What can be planted on poor soil

There are crops that will give good yields even on poor soil. It takes an average of 3-4 years to regenerate barren sandstone or clay.

Therefore, you can plant early-ripening vegetables and herbs in soil with little nutrients. For example, onions, radishes or peas. These are unpretentious crops that will yield without problems even in the absence of fertilizers. What vegetables give an abundant harvest on any soil - read in the material OBOZREVATEL.

Salad crops

When growing herbs, the most important thing is to ensure timely and regular watering. This way the leaves will not start to become bitter.

You can plant in poor soil:

  • leaf lettuce
  • spinach
  • arugula
  • dill
  • sorrel.

They grow on average in 1-2 months and quickly absorb a minimum of nutrients from the soil.

Salad crops can be sown several times - in spring and summer.

But the mangold (leaf beet) needs better conditions and fertile soil, because it produces many large leaves that need nutrients.


Onion greens can be planted in any bed. They are completely unpretentious crops, perfectly combined with other greens. Onions can be planted in between the rows so that they do not need a separate bed.

Shrub asparagus beans

Heat-loving beans can be planted in the second to third decade of May. It is an unpretentious and productive crop that grows quickly even in not very favorable conditions.


Radishes will yield poorly only on acidic soil. The main difficulties in growing radishes may arise only because of untimely sowing. The fact is that radishes like coolness and short daylight hours. Therefore, it is sown as soon as the soil dries out a little and warms up after the winter. Like salad greens, radishes need abundant and frequent watering.


The unpretentious horseradish will grow almost anywhere. But it should be borne in mind that horseradish quickly grows in the area allotted to it and can even begin to "choke" its neighbors. Therefore, it is better to plant it on the edge of the bed and fence it off with tins, slate or boards.


Peas, as they say, "feed themselves. Its roots independently extract nitrogen from the environment, so in terms of conditions, soil and fertilizers it is generally undemanding.

Peas can also be used as a fertilizer. After harvesting, the roots are left to decompose. This enriches the soil with nitrogen and organics.

By the way, there is a fertilizer, which can be used to feed almost any crop. The only limitation is the frequency of such fertilization. Read more about universal fertilizer in this material.
