ABOUT pH:
6-6.5 pH is an ideal range to grow most garden plants, however for some certain types of plants like blueberries, azaleas, camellias and gardenia. These plants like an acid soil, therefore the soil pH to grow these plants should be a bit lower at 4.5 - 5.0 pH. The pH scale is graduated from 0 to 14. A pH of 7.0 is neutral; reactions above 7.0 are alkaline and below 7.0 are acid.

ABOUT potting mix:
Always buy potting mixes that shows the Australian Standard this logo. This is a Australian Standard and ensures you are getting a great quality potting or soil mix to grow happy and healthy plants.

ABOUT Friday, our Galah:
Friday is now about 36 years old and he's been at the Sanctuary Point Garden Centre since he was a little fledgling. Friday was rescued by the previous owners when he fell out of his nest and almost died. Greg and Kathy Edwards, current owners of the garden centre took Friday under their wings and now Friday lives a very privileged existence, meeting lots of fabulous friends every day.

ABOUT Searles 5 in 1:
You really can't go past a good quality pelletised manure which contains other essential ingredients. Our recommendation is Searles 5 IN 1 pellets. There are so many benefits to using 5 IN 1 on your garden beds, vegetable crops and lawns. 5 IN 1 combines the benefits of 10 organic ingredients (cow, fowl, sheep manures, mushroom compost, zeolite, blood & bone, hoof and horn) to enrich the soil. It also contains trace elements and minerals to keep the plants overall health in check. Boosted with beneficial microbes to enhance plant growth and improves soil.

ABOUT fungi in your garden:
Most fungi is fabulous for the garden and should be left wherever possible. Plants and fungi form a symbiotic relationship which means the plants provide essential food for the fungi to grow and the fungi supply the plants with essential nutrients. Of course caution should always be taken when handling fungi and it's always important to educate children on the dangers of putting anything out of the garden in their mouths.
