Seed Sowing Guide – September

Kate’s Tip of the month:

The start of spring means that plants are bursting into life, so feeding them is really important.  Using a complete organic fertiliser will improve the soil as well as provide nutrients for your plants.  Use soluble fertiliser on newly planted seedlings and on bulbs as they finish flowering.  Feed potted plants with slow-release fertiliser and re-pot if required.

You can buy these seeds from my market stall at The Cygnet Market.

If you need any further advice, please ask. My father ran a successful nursery for many years in Adelaide and I have grown up amongst trees, plants and seeds. I want people to be able to grow their own food.

If you would like to purchase Cottage Garden seeds or Native seeds, you can order these from us at Cygnet Market.

All of my products are also available most days from 1pm at The Garden Shed and Pantry, Cygnet
