  • New Gardener in Paraparaumu wanting help

    Hi , I have 3 big garden beds in my yard that i moved into and i want to grow veggies in them, there is existing dirt/soil in it that i went through and pulled weeds out etc.
    what i need to know is how much compost should i mix with soil and should i mix more than compost. beds vary from 4mx3m to 2.5mx1.5m etc. all with depth of 500mm at least
    Any advise would be appreciated.

    Any compost will make a huge difference. If you can afford it, get a small truck load and spread around. If not - a few bags and focus on 1 plot at a time. Spread on top and lightly fork in. If you are a 'No Dig' gardener, just spread it out over the plot and as you garden/weed/plant, work the compost in. Cheers
