THINKING OF GROWING TOMATOES, CAPCISUMS

Answer: Hi Steve,

Thank you for contacting us regarding converting sandpit into a veggie patch. It’s a great idea to have a veggie patch and enjoy home grown crops. You will need to import fresh garden soil and dig in organic matter such as Yates Dynamic Lifter Organic Plant Food to improve the soil structure and apply half strength of Yates Thrive All Purpose Natural Fish & Seaweed for new planting.

Alternatively, you can experiment no dig garden by place layers of different materials. http://communitygarden.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/no-dig-brochure.pdf
