This luscious mound of goodness is our favourite locally sourced soil - the famous Vegie Mix from Bulleen Art & Garden. This mix of premium garden blend soil, cow manure, organic compost, mushroom compost, and ZooGro soil conditioner really lives up to its reputation as the best vegie garden soil in Melbourne!
