Improving soil fertility, and moisture holding.
Compost is great to get moisture holding humus and nutrients in the soil,topdress and the worms will dig it in for you.
We can’t get enough sometimes. extra sources I have found -
Coffee shop offer to collect their coffee grounds
local fruit and veg shop, they have veg waste unsold and past it for selling.they will be glad to get rid of it free.
seaweed after spring tides.
Fishmonger, heads and tails and filleted bones if you can stomach it good for the soil, I dig a trench for next years runner beans in the autumn, fill the bottom with the fish bits, top with kitchen veg waste then cover with soil. Plant runner beans on top in the spring,for a lush crop and when you dig or rotovate a year later not a bone in sight.!
