Stunning spring 🌷There's still time to add native plants to your garden before the soil dries out.

They are looking incredible at this time of year. Garden Guardian Lorraine is at our estuary-friendly #bayokgarden landscaping on Layman Road.

We soiled our undies! 🌱GeoCatch staff and members, along with the DWER team, soiled our undies all in the name of soil health!The experiment 👩‍🔬100% cotton briefs are buried in the topsoil for 2 months and then dug up to see the level of decomposition. The theory is – the more decomposition the more biological activity and healthier the soil is. The results 📊We had a range of decomposition from almost nothing at all to most of the cotton breaking down. Some of our findings:🦠 Soil microbes are hard at work even in suburban gardens! 🦠 Great variety in soil microbial activity among different soil/garden types🦠 Waterlogged soil has less microbial activity 🦠 Adding mulch and organic matter can improve soil health and support soil biology🦠 Natural mulch (leaf litter) and organic matter supports soil biology🦠 Composted manures can also support soil health – use if nutrients are required Thanks to Cotton Info for the methodology for this experiment.
