Compost Improving Soil in Bellport, NY
These stunning raised fruit, vegetable and herb gardens are in Bellport New York, belong to one of our lovely customers. These beds have received a nice topping up of compost for the past three years and all of those microbes are hard at work feeding these healthy plants for the best possible harvest.
To grow a bountiful veggie garden, adding pollinator plants along the edge and scattered throughout will help to keep the bees and butterflies coming to your garden all summer long. Perennials along the edge, Nepeta, Joe Pye Weed (Sweet and Chocolate) and Tall Phlox are best in our garden. Annuals scattered within allow for easy rotation of crops. Sunflowers, Cosmos, Nasturtium and Zinnia are favorites.
