Hi, I have no issue growing spinach, but I haven't been able to grow silverbeet for a long time now. Any ideas please? Also, can I dig my fresh lambs pellets from the farm into my garden?

Grow the right time of the yearn. Good rich soil, water regularly and full sun.

Don't put fresh manure into soil where you are going to plant soon. It needs to breakdown first.
