NEW SOW­ING TECH­NIQUE

NZ Gardener - - Letters -

Hav­ing ex­pe­ri­enced se­vere back pain which meant I couldn’t reach the ground to plant seeds, I found a method that works well. I made a lit­tle trench with the rake and then used a length of polythene pipe, about 70cm long, and dropped the seeds in one by one. It was very easy to po­si­tion the pipe ex­actly where I wanted the seed to grow. Seeds planted, all done stand­ing up. Shirley Mar­cussen, GOLDEN BAY
