The cycle of season will reveal different challenges as a garden ravaged by bushfire recovers. This time of the year look for:
Reduce weed growth and remove any seeds. Bare soil is always prone to weeds and with charred soil, weed seeds are opportunistic. There is no competition for moisture and light, so they can take off. Mulch all garden beds to retain moisture as the weather warms up.
Prune any dead or diseased wood to ensure strong healthy plants.
Ensure irrigation systems are operating correctly and water is soaking into the soil.

We pay our respects where we live work and grow, and across all Seasol International locations to elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
