Video – How to sow green manure seeds

In this episode of our ‘How To Garden‘ video series Ellen Mary of Ellen Mary Gardening shows you from a rather chilly allotment how sow green manure seeds. What are green manure seeds you may ask?  Green manure seeds are a great organic way to restore nitrogen in the soil. The plant takes the nitrates from the soil and stores it in its roots. The following year you dig the roots back in and it restores the nitrogen balance back into the soil. Like Ellen says “good soil means happy plants!”
