Hi folks, So today, I was looking at my overflowing coriander pot and felt so guilty about hardly using it. Keep in mind that I have another pot started with seeds as I turn these over every 6-8…Continue

I've been thinking for sometime about starting a market stall. There are often beautiful things for the garden that I have to order online or are only available from America or England with huge shipping costs for one item. I was hoping to pick your brains for things that would attract you into a market stall if you don't mind? Anything from products you would like to use in the garden, to seed varieties or plants displayed in a certain way. I'm envisioning some plants in…Continue
