Growing Delectable Fruit and Vegetable Gardens – the Natural Way!
Your investment in fruit trees and a vegetable garden can pay off in a big way. There’s nothing better than a succulent tomato, vine-ripened in the sun or a sweet, juicy strawberry on a hot summer day. In order to reap the reward, however, you need to provide the best care for the plants and trees.
With Sweet Peet mulch, you’ll produce sweet-tasting vegetables and beautiful, juicy fruits. It’s the ticket to your locally sourced, from-the-backyard-garden meal on a breezy summer’s night: Using mulch to create nutrient-rich soil for your fruit and vegetable garden.
How it works
Sweet Peet contains safe ingredients. In fact, the all-natural, organic materials in Sweet Peet can give you the confidence to eat fruit right off the tree or vegetable plant. It is safe to use in all of your vegetable gardens, on your fruit trees or in your orchard.
The product contains a near-neutral pH value that helps with alkaline and acid soils. By balancing both needs, Sweet Peet maintains what gardeners call the “pH sweet spot,” which releases nutrients locked inside the soil and delivers them to the vegetable and fruit plants’ feeder roots.
When your soil hit this spot, you can guarantee a good harvest – if the season’s weather cooperates!
Mulching fruit trees
The key to a good fruit harvest is a strong root system. Mulching around fruit trees with Sweet Peet encourages solid, sturdy roots to grow healthy fruit trees. Applying between 3 to 4 inches of Sweet Peet around the bottom of the fruit trees also prevents weeds from growing – and robbing the roots of critical moisture.
But don’t just use any mulch. Some products actually use soil nutrients for themselves, robbing the trees of critical growth-promoting nutrients.
Protection for trees
Acid rain can destroy the trees on your property. But Sweet Peet mulch applied around the base offers protection. Spread about 2 inches of mulch around the tree, starting where the branches hang down to close to the tree trunk. Leave a perimeter of space that’s free of mulch directly around the tree trunk; it shouldn’t come into contact with the bark.
With mulch protecting your trees, it will prevent acid rain from being absorbed into the root system. Trees near the roads are often susceptible to salt from the road being absorbed into the soil. As an added bonus, Sweet Peet mulch will protect the tree roots in winter, too.
