DECEMBER MEANS…

HO HO! MOW!
Feed your lawn with a light dose of Eco88s, water in well & watch it transform. Mow high – and it forms a protective summer thatch to slow evaporation of moisture from the soil.
CONSIDER A LIVING XMAS TREE!
A tree that can be planted in the garden when Xmas is finished. Try a compact Conifer or a Wollemi Pine for larger areas.
T’IS THE SEASON TO BE WEEDING!
Larger weeds compete with your tasty treats for water & nutrients and pulling them up may damage the roots of your productive plants. Collect the weeds in a bucket and feed to your chickens. The girls will love you for it!
GIVE YOUR GARDEN SOME XTRA GLAM!
Toss around a generous dose of Organic Xtra, wait for rain and watch your garden glow!
MERRY MULCHING!
A nice thick layer of fresh mulch will avoid precious moisture loss, cover & smother a multitude of sins & give your gardens a neat, finished look to impress your guests.
INTERPLANT A FESTIVE CARPET OF FLOWERS IN YOUR VEGGIE PATCH
This will pretty up your patch to impress the visitors & will be great at attracting pollinators and beneficial insects.
