A range of vegetables, soft fruit and flowers throughout the year.
Grown as organically as we can manage, using all our own compost, well rotted (one year old) horse manure (no it doesn't pong), to put nutrients and humus back into the soil, which works so hard for us. Our own comfrey is cut and put to wilt along the base of our soft fruit.
This is supplemented mostly by slow release fertiliser (fish, blood and bone). Some proprietary chicken-based concentrated manure is used, garden lime is used where cabbages are to be grown, potash gives the fruit a good start in the season, and nitrogenous feeds are used to kick-start the cabbages after a long winter.
