"Cool, Anne - not too bad for an old boiler ;-) Shortest winter = no global warming. I wonder how the deniers justify that phrase now. They are not gardeners!"

Local Suppliers - need help!

Hi everyoneI have clients who live at Brighton on a suburban block, who are doing it tough. The wife has cancer and they home school 3 children with an autism-related health issue. I am helping them create a healing, low maintenance edible garden and redesign their space to meet their needs. I also want to include a small garden sanctuary - a place where she can retreat to for time out with a bench seat and some fragrant edible beauty under a big tree. They need bulk organic matter. Manure,…See More

Easy DIY Potting Mix Recipe

Posted on January 11, 2012 at 22:28 0 Comments

I regularly make my own potting mix at home to save money and control what my plants are growing in. I had a lot of trouble with bagged mixes (although I now use Searles when I need a commercial mix).  I used to waste a lot of time adding nutrients every time I potted up a plant so do this now when I make the mix. I get good results so thought I'd share what I do, but I'd love to know what recipes others use too.…

Spring Garden update - hot & dry!

Posted on November 21, 2011 at 15:51 31 Comments

It's nearing the end of spring but with temperatures rising and no rain, I'm organising the shade structures for the garden to give my plants some relief in the hot dry weeks and months ahead.  The investment in time and mulch for the gardens is paying off with the soil retaining moisture and plants still pretty happy.

My nasturtiums are doing well all over the garden and…

Nasturtiums - More than just a pretty face!

Posted on July 24, 2011 at 7:15 5 Comments

There are two types of nasturtium but the one I can never get enough of in our garden is Tropaeolum majus (also known as Indian Cress) not the Officinal that grows in water!

They're tasty additions to salads, great space fillers, pest controllers, attract beneficial pollinators, make cheerful cut flowers and are also a great medicinal plant.  But there are many more uses ...
