Improving soil

Posted: 19/07/2014 at 06:49
I use well-rotted organic farmyard manure in bags from the garden centre, along with whatever bags of pony poo I can get my hands on when driving around in the countryside (some places sell it bagged up at the gate).

I also compost all vegetable waste, lawn mowings etc and dig the compost into our garden.

In three years we've turned dry gritty sandy soil into a very healthy free-draining loam producing good plants and veg
