Posted on August 28, 2013 by Michael Hambly

We are now offering our instore deals to our online customers as well, check out our multiple bag buy options and save yourself some cash.

I was reading in the paper the other day some helpful gardening tips on what sort of fertiliser you should be using for different plant varieties and what to look for on the products packaging.

The three main elements of a fertiliser are

  • nitrogen (N)
  • phosphoros (P)
  • potassium (K)

When the ratio of these are about the same, you can expect a product to be a well balanced all-rounder.

  • A higher ratio of nitrogen (N) will encourage leafy growth
  • A higher ratio of phosphorus (P) will encourage root development
  • A higher ratio of potassium (K) will encourage fruit and flower production.
I hope this info was helpful and if anyone else has some knowledge they wish to share send me an email to michael@kensingtonproduce.com.au and I will publish it on our blog, happy gardening !

Posted on August 13, 2013 by Michael Hambly

If your curently buying a certain brand off dog or cat food from a pet shop or vet around our area I suggest you call up and see what price we can do because it surprises me what some stores are getting away with charging their customers.

Kudo's to them for doing so at the end of the day we are all here to put food on the table, but if you give us a buzz or drop us an email, I reckon we can keep a few dollars in your pocket.

No dig garden beds

Posted on August 02, 2013 by Michael Hambly

Hi everyone just a quick update to let everyone know that we have sourced some more bins for the no dig gardens.

The old beds that we had were ex apple bins and the new ones are ex potato bins. In terms of size they are very similar and I will get photos and dimensions up soon when they come in, we are expecting them to arrive in 2-3 weeks time.

I strongly suggest if you are interested in them that you send me an email with your details and how many you might want and I'll put you on the list. If you miss the first shipment there will be a final shipment in 6-7 weeks time.

UPDATE ON OUR CURRENT HAY BALE SUPPLIES

Posted on May 01, 2013 by Michael Hambly

 

 

I've recently come back from a very informative and interesting trip through central N.S.W down to Victoria, the purpose of the trip was to source the best quality hay available to market.

 

This year I meet with several farmers in a few different locations, all were very welcoming and loved a chat.

There products varied a lot, even from farmers who were neighbours or across the other side of a river. All were down on production because of floods from previous years and some because of lack of water allocation.

What some people don't realize is how much the same kind of hay ( for example Lucerne ) can vary, and not all hay is the same.

N.S.W for example can often get 6 cuts of Lucerne per year. Most dedicated Lucerne farmers use what is called a summer active Lucerne, so the plant stays dormant over winter and kicks off around November with what is known as first cut Lucerne, which often has a thicker stalk and can be known to have a little grass through it.

Not the ideal racehorse quality hay, but still good enough for hacks. As the weather heats up the hay comes up quicker and also has a slightly thinner stalk and once the hay is baled right produces racehorse quality hay. Which is exactly the hay we look for.

It has been said that hay is easy to grow and just about all farmers have had a crack at it or know someone who has, but were it gets tricky and is often an art form is in the bailing of hay, it needs to be cut and cured in perfect conditions to keep the leaf on the stalk and stop the hay from souring and going off.

Like anything in life it all comes down to knowledge and experience, and we have the best farmers on-board to supply you with excellent quality hay at an affordable price.
