I prefer soil as I find it has better airation so the plant can breathe during the flowering cycle.

Hi blubie, another great topic. No, I've not used sand in my tomatoes or flowers. I like to buy the huge bags of potting mix with the fertilizer all ready mixed in the bag. I love the Scott's brand or Miracle Grow. I get them at Lowe's or Home Depot. After about a month, I like to put a liquid fertilizer in with it, just as a little extra boost. I usually buy the Miracle Grow granules in the box and mix with water. I don't pour it over the plant, but down in the ground beside it. It might burn the plant up. A trick I do is, get a little piece of PVC pipe and poke in the ground beside my plants, that way when I water them, I pour the water into the pipe, instead of the ground. It goes straight to the roots and the water doesn't go all over the other areas of the ground. Hope that helps. Take care, Ginger.
