"Growing your own food is like printing your own money" — Ron Finley.
There has never been a better time to start growing your own veggies. Unfortunately, with advances in food production technology has come an overall degradation of our soils. This impacts in a negative way on the nutritional quality of the fresh food we eat. Our major supermarket chains keep a great deal of their fresh produce in cold storage, or import it from overseas, so that by the time it gets to your kitchen, the nutritional value is pretty questionable.
There are a couple of really compelling reasons why it just makes sense to grow your own vegetables:
We’ve had some much needed rain, and it is a very good time to get in to those garden beds, pull out the weeds, and top up the beds with a nice thick blanket of mulch. There are lots of different mulches to choose from and we have put together a quick run down of our top 5 tree mulches to give you an idea of some of what types of applications they suit best.
At the moment, we have 20kg bags of the very popular Kashmiri pebbles in stock and they represent a fantastic way to get your smaller landscaping projects done quickly and with style.
We are halfway to November already and it's newsletter time again. We have specials on top dress soil to give your lawn some love, and hardwood mulch. We also have tips to grow veggies in pots, a yummy garlic butter recipe and we introduce our Trade Partner, Matt Lucas from Lucas Mob. Enjoy!
