What’s GREAT This Week?
Is your vegie patch about to SPRING into life after the rain last week? Now is the perfect time to plant your warm weather seedlings from One Organics. They have a range of organic and heirloom seedlings that are grown from open pollinated non hybrid non treated seeds. They also supply the products to boost the micoorganisms in your soil resulting in strong healthy productive plants. Some great warmer weather seedling varieties are basil, bush beans, beetroot, capsicum, chillies, cucumbers, eggplant, lettuce, okra, silverbeet, tomatoes and zucchini. And don’t forget to include some flowers to attract beneficial insects and bees.
A tip from Kieran: It is important to rotate mulch as it breaks down in your soil. Varying your mulch to include variety such as lucerne and Rhodes grass to sugar cane delivers different nutrients to your soil.
Lisianthus are in full bloom now so pick up a bunch of these treasured flowers this week at Jumping Red Ant.
