Spare a thought for our Aussie cousins

The number 1 gardening trade secret

As you would expect, there are several ‘trade secrets’ to getting the best from your garden. Many gardeners strive for years without ever really feeling completely satisfied with their efforts.  Others struggle on without even guessing how much better it could be. Well, we can now share with you one of the best trade secrets in the book.
This seemingly insignificant tip – and aren’t the best tips always so obvious in retrospect? - will ensure your


garden is as healthy, vibrant and low maintenance as the best in the business.
“Mulch often and regularly,” says gardening expert, Tod Palenski, of Awapuni Nurseries. “Mulching is the best kept secret in the fight against weeds, diseases and windy, dry or wet soil conditions. It will save you time and effort in the garden and give your soil and your plants new life.


“You’ll be amazed at the difference this seemingly low value practice will generate.”
