In addition to our soils at Surrey Hills Garden Supplies, you can also enhance the soil by adding products such as Dynamic Lifter, manures and fertilisers such as Charlie Carp.
Other products that are used in vegie patches that we carry are Rally Mulch Matt for weed control, Treated Pine Sleepers, Pea Straw, garden stakes, Scoria and Geotextile for drainage assistance.
Some other aspects to consider when commencing a vegie patch or planter box is how much sun the area will get during the day, the distance from the house (try and keep it as close as possible to your house) and you will need to check its progress every day and water it.
Ideally choose an area with full sun for the majority of the day. Endeavour to create a well-drained vegie patch – either of our soils are ideally suited for growing Autumn vegetables such as lettuce, broccoli, onions and peas which all grow well in Melbourne.
We also carry items that you may require gardening tools such as weeders, cultivators and trowels, pesticides, garden stakes,weed matt, lime and Dynamic lifter.
No need to leave home as we delivery as little as 1/8 (0.125) of a cubic mtr up to a full large truck full of product, we delivery to all surrounding suburbs such as Box Hill, Blackburn, Camberwell, Mont Albert and Balwyn.
