Garden

A healthy garden is an achievement to be admired, and something to be consumed in the case of fruits and vegetables. But, a healthy garden also requires time and attention that begins with the soil preparation for planting the first seeds, plants, bushes, hedges, fruit trees, or any other foliage that will grow on your property.

Bibra Lake Soils has a variety of soils which are ideal for gardening in the Perth region. If you are not sure what your soil composition is or what soil you will need for your garden, you can bring a sample to Bibra Lake Soils for an analysis.

For every garden foliage, there is a season. You’ll love the colourful results of all your efforts when you plant your garden at the right time of the year. One great month-by-month garden planting guide for the Perth area is https://www.gardeninggals.net.au/.

When planning your outdoor projects, remember that flower beds, vegetables, trees, and bushes will grow, thrive, and bloom if treated with the right fertiliser and mulch for the type of planting to be done. You’ll find garden fertilisers here, and a choice of garden mulches here.

The Yacon resembles potatoes, sweet potatoes, and yams with flowering parts similar to sunflowers.
