Field Trip Sunday 22nd September 2013

Alan has nine wick gardens with a wide variety of produce growing. These gardens use a water reservoir that cuts down water requirements by at least 50%. This means no hand-held watering, just checking the reservoir once a month.  They are ideal for improving soil nutrition and as a bonus reduce the germination of unwanted weeds. They make gardening simple for the non-gardener and are the ultimate in low-maintenance gardening. Gardeners can go on holidays and do not have to worry about arranging watering while they are away.
