The Benefits of Neem Meal

We now have Neem Meal, an excellent fertilizer and pathogen reducer.

“This soil amendment is twofold. It will provide a better crop yield because it will provide the nutrients that crops need. And two, it helps to cure diseases and will control the growth of nematodes and harmful plant pathogens. Plus, the crop yield is higher when using Neem cakes than with any other fertilizer; at between 15-25%.”

Sandy McMahon (left) was one of the door prize winners at the Seedy Saturday event this weekend.  Ellison’s donated two “Air-Pots” filled with all sorts of gardening supplies. Air-Pots create optimum root development through oxygenation of the soil and stop  plants from becoming root bound.  Also visible in the pot is ‘Beetle Frass’, a new product we are carrying with similar benefits to worm castings.  Why not drop by the store this week and get some garden inspiration!
