To green manure or not to green manure, that is the question…

To green manure or not to green manure, that is the question…

Deciding whether to use green manure, as far as we are concerned is an easy question to answer. If your soil is left bare for 6 weeks or more then it is definitely worth spending ½ hour sowing some green manure seeds to that soil then letting nature take its course.  There’s something very satisfying about using nature itself to put back depleted nutrients and organic matter back into your soil, helping to improve soil texture and structure and to suppress weeds. It almost makes you feel like a farmer or guardian of the land, using the unproductive fallow period...

Out of May and into June

As we approach the end of May and move into June, we are reflecting back on a very busy month and looking forward to a fruitful June. For Seeds to Sow, May has been exceptionally busy, a key time for seed sowing, market days, garden shows and for finding inspiration whilst looking after a garden during a very dry (and at times very hot!) month of May. We’ve hosted a few market days and hopefully inspired some people to give a few of our seed varieties a try. Find out more on our facebook page; https://www.facebook.com/seedstosowltd . We’ve lent a helping...
