Now is the perfect time to feed the soil
Looking after the soil during the winter and early spring months is very important, adding organic matter is key to building healthy soil.
Adding only 100g per square metre will increase soil fertility and nutrients in the soil. Seaweed is the number one fertiliser you can put in your garden. It conditions the soil and gives it an extra boost for the growing season.
Both these products will help increase worms in the soil and feed the microbes, microbes are the determining factor in soil fertility. Nature uses microbes to feed plants so keeping these little guys healthy and happy is so important.
My usual practice has been to incorporate Better Plants pellets, which are rich in organic matter, into the mix. This helps maintain a contented worm population and results in more fertile soil by the time spring arrives.
Adding granular seaweed will make a massive difference to the soil, replacing nutrients in the soil that were used during the growing season.
- Remove any weeds and roots,
- Add these both into the soil.
- Rake in well
- Cover the soil with cardboard and some extra soil or weed control
