What will you plant? Event

Pefferlaw has a wide range of potting soil, black earth, organic compost, hanging basket planter mix and manure from sheep and cattle. Mixing in manure to existing soil provides nutrient to plants, improve aeration and increase water-holding capacity. The manure from Pefferlaw is natural and free of contaminants. There is NO insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemicals, industrial material or municipal sources that contain metals and pathogens or wetting agents.

Using this natural organic manure will aid with sustainable gardening, be economical and healthy. Many of us grow plants for fun and we all think of avoiding chemicals, so using material that are natural is quite important. Pefferlaw also carries fertilizers from Ferti-Pro that are completely organic; this is good for fine herbs and beddings.
I got this charred oak barrel planter to plant a mix of vegetable and herbs. We have to prepare this barrel by soaking it with water before planting.
What are you planning on planting this year?
