Weekend in The Garden

  • Make sure your soil is healthy by incorporating organics or Troforte M into the topsoil. You will be seeing good growth almost immediately
  • There are many varieties of seedlings to choose from such as corn, melon, carrots and tomatoes
  • This is the perfect time for planting tomatoes. Using a trellis or stake ensures the developing plants only need to be tied up occasionally
  • Seedlings are a convenient way to grow veggies. When it comes to planting, ensure the seedling is 75% the height of the label. If it's too tall your plant will be root bound, too small and the seedling can suffer from root damage
  • A good tip, buy your seedlings in sell pack punnets, breaking the seedlings apart in trays damages the roots and results in loses
  • Help your plants settle in with a dose of Seasol. This will help reduce the transplant shock, stimulate healthy root growth and deliver great results
