The class provided a lot information about the specific requirements of different vegetables and gave me a structure to implement for crop rotation. It gave me the confidence to use the pH test kit that has been sitting in the cupboard. A really useful class and a great presenter.
the class was great i learnt a lot about soil preparation. All classes are beneficial if you can come home with only one important thing that you have learnt then they are successful classes. I came home with many tips. Maria was great presentation very informative. I will definitely recommend these classes. Thankyou for presenting them at the Nursery,
I actually learned alot about what to plant together in beds so as I can plan effective bed rotation and get the best results!
