Traditional Gardens

Dig a suitable sized hole for the seedling you are planting (generally twice as big as the expected size of the plant). Fill the hole with Goldcote Vegetable and Herb Mix. For tomatoes planted in the garden, you should dig a hole that takes at least 10 litres. Plant directly into the mix.

Raised Beds

Raised beds will produce higher yields with less weeding required. Generally they allow for earlier planting and also provide a more easily accessible garden. If crops can grow down into the soil under the bed, loosen the soil below to a spade depth and mix in Goldcote Vegetable and Herb Mix. Fill raised bed to a planting depth of 20-30cm. Compact lightly by hand before planting and water to see what level the mix settles at before adding more.

Containers or Planter Boxes

Containers or planter boxes allow for ease of access and enable you to locate your garden wherever space permits. Vegetables are not house plants and require larger containers. Fill container with Goldcote Vegetable and Herb Mix and plant directly into the mix. The container must have drainage holes in the bottom to allow excess water to escape.

After Care

For best results use the Goldcote Fertiliser range when top dressing or additional feeding is required. Refer to packaging for instructions.
