Answer: Hi Fareez,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

It’s great to hear that there will be a new veggie patch in your garden, how exciting!

I suggest improving soil by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your veggies need to grow and thrive. You will need to mix 100g per m2 into soil prior to planting and then reapply as a side dressing every 6 weeks during the growing season.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.
