wa soil... more sand than soil

Having moved from SA (where its clay clay and more clay) i have struggled with the sandy soil conditions here. Due to strict WA quarantine laws, a lot of the green manures you could grow east arent available here... so i am doing my bit by planting chia in large pots ( i dont have as much vege garden as i would like) and then digging the potting mix and chia into the soil to condition also trying borage, but so far the caterpillars are thwarting my best efforts !

I use sugar mulch on garden, birds love it, keeps plants moist, and its not harsh to handle. Fantastic stuff to use in garden, recommend it.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
