We use locally made natural worm cast based compost and feed. This is a natural bio food making healthy strong plants, naturally balanced and less prone to disaese.
Our plants are grown hardy to enable faster establishment after they arrive too you. it is important to unwrap immediately and soak if needed. if you need time before planting then a loose covering of compost in a pot for any plugs or bare root plants will do.
