Blocks are back

After having a less than exceptional result using seedling cells to grow my seedlings, I have decided to keep making soil blocks for my market stall. To make this work, I purchased a new blocking machine from England. The new blocker makes slightly smaller blocks (1.5″) than the previous 2″ blocks. At the next Glenbrook market everything is back in 2″ blocks (the new machine did not arrive in time). For the April markets (and the soon to be attended Marrickville markets) most seedlings will be in the new 1.5″ blocks and remain 50c each. Larger seedlings will be in the 2″ blocks and these will cost 85c.

To find out which seedlings grow in which blocks…you are going to have to wait until the April markets or, if you own a copy, turn to page 152 of  “The new organic grower”
