Spray free pea straw

Hi there, wondering if anyone knows where to get spray free pea straw in Canterbury? We're wanting to create a bunch of no dig gardens and keen for the pea straw on top to be as close to organic as pos. I found some spray free hay (very few seeds) from a lady down Marshlands road that will be perfect for a lower layer. See More

Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
We've just moved to a 3/4 acre section in Little River, Banks Peninsula. Have started to plant out lots of veges, beneficial insect plants and some green manure. The ground is quite rocky in places and beautifully rich in others. There are, however, a few majestic gums in the area we want to plant out most of the garden and the soil around them seems quite sterile. Wondering if this is because of the eucalyptus? Keen to do some no dig gardens and build the soil up a bit.
