TIPS FOR GETTING YOUR GARDEN READY FOR YOUR AUTUMN VEGGIE PATCH –
First get rid of all weeds in the area as they just promote bad bugs into your garden.
Harvest the last of your Summer crops & get rid of any poor growing ones.
Dig in Compost.. the more the better (All in One is a ideal compost has an added organic fertiliser)
If you’ve been growing beans this season dig all parts of plant into soil ..because these are nitrogen fixing plants this will add much needed nitrogen to the soil for your summer crop.
Water veggie match after digging in compost & apply about a 8cm thick layer of Lucerne, pea or sugar cane mulch, this will keep the moisture in & warm the soil to make the good microbes in the soil happy.
