Series 2 - Soil Improvement (19 July @ 1030am)
To have healthy plants, we need to ensure there are good microbes in the soil to make fertiliser nutrients available to it. During this session, find out what fertilisers and soil amendments can be used to improve soils. In addition, we will showcase some products that are available in Singapore, as well as some methods used overseas, and participants can take home a sample size portion of a few different kinds of soil amendments.
Series 3 - Soil Blocking (26 July @ 1030am)
Soil blocking is not a new practice, it is common in Europe, and growing in popularity in farms overseas for its many benefits. Instead of growing in conventional seed trays, soil blocks are made with a special hand tool. Some reasons for preferring soil blocks include a lowered risk of transplant shock for plants with delicate roots, promotes healthier root systems, and results a reduction of plastic waste.
Come and experience for yourself how a proper soil block mix is prepared, and then turned into a soil block, and of course — take some for yourself to test out at home.
The cost is $49 per person, and limited spaces available, so booking is necessary. Find out more information at www.tendergardener.com .
