Growing local


At the January GV at Lissa's we had a guest speaker Ismail Moola, from Nutri-Organics. It was decided that those who purchased his Potting/Garden Medium might like to do a comparison test with the view to seeing which product performs best and fruits with a better tasting product.

It would be good if we could all keep a photo diary here to show the performance results. It would also help if we could each write a little piece about the performance/fertilizing products and methods used/bugs how you fixed the problem/moulds, fungi, wilt, virus/ etc. Don't forget to date your entries.

Here you will find the 1st photos of our Comparison Test. I have marked the pots of Tomatoes so as we will remember which is Ismail's and Ours.

We planted the plants into Ismail's Medium by first wetting the Medium, we soaked the punnet in a Seaweed solution to help with settling in, we watered and did not add anything else to the Tomatoes after planting.

Our Potting Medium is a mix of 3/4 of our home made Compost and a 1/4 Spent Coffee Grounds, we soaked the punnet in a Seaweed solution to help with settling in and watered in with the Seaweed Solution after planting.
