July is the month to start preparing your soil for the summer planting. We have grabbed this old bathtub and are going to use it to create a little garden that we are going to write about on this blog. We have started the base with some good quality soil we grabbed from Bulleen Art & garden nursery and mixed it up with some organic mushroom compost. Manure will be added in the coming weeks as well as some mulch from home! I like to add my mushroom compost first as it can affect the PH levels of the soil, hence it give me plenty of time to adjust this prior to planting.
I have given it a good mix and now it will rest a little until the manure goes in! I like the look of it already!
