I have been tidying and digging over. I am adding 'rock dust', which I was delighted to find being stocked by my local Garden Centre. It is produced by the Seer Centre, and I often wish I could get oranigsed enough to visit them. There is a good article on them by SEPA. I also added some to the top of my compost bins.
Research has shown the following benefits of adding Rockdust™ to soil:
Provides slow, natural release of elements and trace minerals
Increases the nutrient intake of plants
Boosts and regenerates soil
Increases mineral rich organic crop yields
Increases the growth of micro organisms and earthworm activity
Increases the storage capacity of the soil
Enhances flavour in crops
Decreases dependence on fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides.
everything starts to look tidy and tucked up for winter. I have also been sorting out pots, you can see them stored against the fence, unfortunatley I have lost lables or labels have faded or I asume I will remember whats in the pink pot or the green one... thats why most of them now have lables like this. . . .
