Different Soils for different Plants....Soil is generally described by the amount of Sand-Clay and Silt it contains...this is known as Texture...Soil Texture is directly related to Nutrient and Drainage capabilities...so it depends a lot on what your Planting...

The ideal Soil for most Plants is a rich Sandy Loam....
