Double Digging Using Seaweed
by Kiwi George
Hi Organic No Dig people from New Zealand. Although I am a confirmed No Dig organic gardener I recall helping my father trenching/double digging the barley and lupin green manure every year, and the magnificent crops he produced. Unfortunately the return for my efforts this year were not up to expectations and I am, albeit at a small section each day due to a dicky ticker, thinking of trenching/double digging the seaweed a recent storm in the Wellington area has blessed me with, rather than incorporating it into my compost heaps or soaking it in my liquid manure barrel and foliar feeding the plants.
Has anyone tried this method of enriching their patch and if so, how long before the patch can be planted.
