Growing tips from Chris
1. Rotate crops to the best of your ability and if that’s not possible, refresh old soil with new. “My problematic crops, such as tomatoes and potatoes, are grown in the new soil every year. If I use existing soil, I get rust or potato blight.” 2. Comfrey is an excellent multi- purpose plant: it makes good mulch, fertilizer, bee food and also deters invasive kikuyu. 3. When faced with poor soil quality, work hard to address imbalances by introducing organic matter to establish the best- quality growing environment.
