BRING A SOIL SAMPLE
The most important part of growing a tree is to get the soil right.
Dig a hole on your property and bring around 1 litre of soil to the meeting. David Bayly from Kaipara Coast Plant Centre will talk about soils – what to look for and how to improve them. We will have a look at the various samples and discuss what needs to be done to create a soil that grows plants well.
Don’t be afraid to bring a sample from the worst pocket in your garden! There will even be a few spot prizes for some of the samples.
