Over the past 40 years I’ve learned a thing or two about growing healthy plants. I’ve been a national buyer and sales manager for Palmers Gardenworld, Zealandia Nursery Company, the Building Depot and Bunnings Warehouse, to name a few. Winning gold at the Ellerslie Flower Show was a big career highlight, as was being named Northern Regional winner of the Nursery Association’s Garden Centre of the Year a few years back.
These days I help schools with their gardening projects and put my green thumbs to work eradicating weeds and replanting natives in my local reserve.
I’ve also discovered the amazing benefits of using Fiber Earth products in my own garden. I can see the plants mulched with Fiber Earth are significantly more advanced. There are many more earth worms active in these areas too and we all know earthworms indicate a healthy, productive soil.
So if you’re keen to learn more about Fiber Earth have a good look around this website or email me your gardening questions – I’m here to help your plants flourish too.
