No Dig Veggie Box

This is an example of where the owner was a builder and asked us to fill their ‘veggie box’ with our special recipe. Our recipe enables a ‘no dig’ garden which is enriched by nature.

Did you know that Tomatoes need a minimum of six hours of light to produce fruit? and more than eight ensures a tasty crop. If you want to know more about how to produce delicious tomatoes… contact us.
