I’ve been neglecting the poor allotment the past year or so due to being so busy with both my work and personal life so I thought it was about time that I gave something back to it. The tulip trough and the archway have been suffering and last year was one of the worst. The munchkin pumpkins and borlotto beans never grew up the old hazel arch and the tulip display was terrible with only a few blooms appearing. Therefore I treated myself and the allotment to a bag of 6X Natural Fertiliser which I picked up at a local garden centre. I’ve heard great reviews about this stuff and thought it would be the perfect way to add all those much needed nutrients back into the soil.
6X Natural Fertiliser is a 100% natural organic fertiliser with a balanced pH of 6.8. It’s environmentally friendly, contains no peat or chemicals and is oven heated at over 250°C to provide a sterilised, weed and pathogen free natural organic fertiliser. 6X Natural Fertiliserhas been produced in the U.K. for over 40 years and is a fully tried, tested and trusted product. Since 6X Natural Fertiliser is six times richer than farmyard manure, it provides balanced nutrition for shrubs, flower beds, vegetables and lawns and is extraordinarily economical – one 15Kg sack of fibrous 6X Natural Fertiliser is sufficient to cover 180sq metres at lawn rate. For greater lawn areas and paddocks etc., it is also available in pelleted form for use in spreaders.
You see I added the shop brought compost into the trough three years ago and it’s starting to lack all the goodness which tulips love. The poor archway also never gets rotated as I grow the same thing on it every year so all the nutrients have slowly been disappearing over the years. After I had weeded both areas I spread a layer of the fertiliser on top of the soil and waited for the rain that was forecast to do it’s thing. I also added a couple of handfuls to the base of my roses and my fruit bushes as well as along the row of raspberry canes. Now all I need to do is wait and cross my fingers, oh and build a new metal archway too!
