Clear out and dig the green­house bor­der

Garden News (UK) - - The Undercover Gardener -

It’s time to re­fresh the soil in your green­house bor­der, so pull out the spent crops that were grow­ing there to­gether with their sup­ports and clear away all de­bris left on the soil. Dig out the top 20cm (8in) of com­post and fork over the soil be­low. Spread fresh com­post over the sur­face and, to help stim­u­late mi­cro­bial ac­tion, wa­ter cal­ci­fied sea­weed into the soil. Top with a layer

of gar­den soil, multi-pur­pose com­post or leaf­mould. Ev­ery few years dig out and re­place all the soil.
