Since it is still thick the roots would want to get a bit further into the soil before they spread. Lamonta would be a better choice organic matter and water holding capacity though because it is more loamy than the other two so with its grain size there are lots of voids in the soil that can trap water and nutrients. 2.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
