"If you have low organic matter, you have an opportunity to increase your vineyard performance. Once you've addressed microbe activity followed by a compost application, you can see larger root mass, stronger vines and thus a more consistent vineyard. I have seen significant results on struggling vines in vineyards across Marlborough. If you ask me organic matter is an essential component to your soil."

Along with vineyard manager, Tracy Taylor, we’ll also be fortunate to hear from Accolade’s winemaker on quality of the grapes and taste of the wine after trialing the application of compost on certain vineyard blocks.

Geoff Warmouth, a soil health consultant will be joining us to talk about the benefits and importance of organic matter and how it contributes to overall health of vineyard soils.

The Location

Mud House Vineyard

The Woolshed Vineyard is situated west of Blenheim in the shelter of a steep-sided triangular hill called the ‘Delta’. This feature protects the vineyard from the frosts in spring and the different aspects of the slope produce fruit which makes for exciting blending options. Fruit from this vineyard goes into their Single Vineyard Woolshed Sauvignon Blanc, Single Vineyard Dambuster Pinot Noir and their Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

Compost

The all around fertiliser and soil conditioner

"The land we grow on and farm in New Zealand has often been passed down through generations and we are continually needing and asking more from it. We should really view compost as one of the key tools and investments to rebuild the health of our soils and growing environments to be true stewards of the land." - Wholesale Landscapes

Product Volume Calculator

Recommended depths

Typically you need a finishing layer of screened soil of 100mm when working with an uneven surface. 100mm of soil will allow to even out any hollows and give enough depth to create a flat surface

A general rule for compost is to allow for the depth of the current root structure of your plants with an additional 30-50% to mix in with the base. If you’re planting into holes or filling up a vege garden  you will need to accommodate for this prior to filling up

We recommend 100mm (10cm) deep for new bark gardens and planting into bare areas. For existing gardens with some cover, we recommend 75mm-100mm (7.5cm-10cm)

Note: Barked areas for playground impact protection need to meet NZS5828:2015 standards and is calculated on the fall areas and the height of the playground. Please contact us to discuss your barked playground areas

For paths and driveways which are often exposed to car and foot traffic, we recommend 100mm-125mm (10cm-12.5cm) on newly prepared areas due to settling of product.

This excludes preparation, compaction or drainage gravel underneath. For existing areas 75mm thickness is recommended for areas needing a small top-up.
