It is again time to plant the newspaper garden pot seedlings straight into the patch.
As mentioned previously, this job is so easy and fun for children to do. Just dig a hole and plant the seedling and newspaper pot all together. As the roots of the seedlings are not disturbed, the success rate for the plant thriving is increased.
I have been planting broad bean seedlings this week. Before I started planting, I added some chicken manuer and compost to the soil in preparation (dig it in, all together).
The broad bean seedlings were planted into a circular formation. Bamboo stakes positioned behind each seedling then tied together at the top, to resemble a teepee. The stakes will support the plants as they grow.
Then I added some pea straw as a mulch.
