Our apple tree has been fruiting for over two months now and it feels like we have done every apple recipe in our cook books! After the local birds robbed us of all but one single blueberry, we have also visited our local organic blueberry farm, picked, frozen and packed so we can still enjoy for breakfast over winter. We have been told to add in super greens to our smoothies, so we now have a garden bed planted out in a couple varitities on kale, spinach and other brassicas.
It has also been a busy time at work. We have been working hard to keep up with the demand on our Deem Triple Action Spray, after advertising in Organic NZ and Get Growing, over 100 bottles per week are going out to garden centres and online sales. We have also had a growing demand for bulk quantities, so now have 2L and 5L containers available. Please contact our office for prices on these.
Unfortunately, these busy times and increased sales has meant that some of our ore popular items have sold out early, so we placed orders with our suppliers that will hopefully arrive in the upcoming months. Keep an eye out on Facebook for when they are back in stock.

PLANT CLOCHES (BELLS)
Help keep your Mum's precious seedlings safe from frosts and pests this winter...
SOPARCO horticultural bells are made of unbreakable plastic. They are light, stack easily and are therefore great to use. Plastic retainers sink into soil for a secure fit. Flat top and holes to collect rain water. Translucent material combined with holes removes the danger of plant sunstroke and helps to regulate temperature and humidity.
As with traditional glass, they protect from frost, especially those that last a few hours in the morning which is often enough to destroy a fragile plant. Put over your plants, they can considerably increase the temperature, which will result in faster growth and earlier crops.
RRP $7.99Special $4.00

We are delighted to once again be sponsoring our Fertilpots for Garden to Table's Great NZ Seedling Sale in spring 2019.
It might only be May, but kids around the country are already planning this years fundraising event for their schools. A wonderful idea for children to learn to propagate, nurture and raise seedling to sell to their community (we think much better than selling chocolates!).
