Hello <<First Name>>
Warm welcome extended to Palmers Garden Centres
The ZingBokashi retailer network has been extended further by the addition of Palmers. Palmers have a number of Garden Centres throughout the North Island and this includes Palmers Planet.
Palmers have a store promotion starting Monday 27th June and all stores with the exception of Whangarei and Palmerston North have been supplied with 15L Zing Bokashi systems and 1kg bags of Compost Zing.
So if you have a Palmers store near you, pop in and support your ‘local’.
Adding Carbon to the Soil (continued)
The winter months of June and July are great months for adding carbon based materials to garden soils in readiness for spring and early summer planting.
By targeting these months, we can take advantage of frost to assist in the breakdown of
soils[particularly heavier types] by adding good amounts of compost and or animal manures can assist in building soil humus plus help with better water holding capacity and nutrient retention.
In the attached picture taken a in early June the garden has had a liberal dressing of sheep manure and wood shavings added. This was left until following rainfall a week later, an application of Earth Zing was applied and then the total area was turned in using a fork. The area will be left until the late spring before planting out will take place.
