Gardening starts with the soil, it doesn’t matter if we are talking pots or garden areas. The healthier the soil the better plants will grow. Did you know that households have to potential to save up to 350kg of green waste each going directly to landfill and divert it to improving the soil in the garden?
If you haven’t recycled kitchen scraps before set this October as the start date. Lettuce leaves, carrot peelings and fruit and vegetable waste will break down. Improving our soils should be the number one priority to having a great garden. Best of all the kitchen scraps, lawn clippings and everything else you can scrounge up is free, which can be quickly converted into nutrient-rich compost for the garden.
