Companion Planting for Containers
The role of plants can be a complicated one ... not for the plants ... but for us to find out about and use to our advantage. There are some plants that nurture, others are martyrs or mask plants and yet others attract beneficial goggas to our gardening spaces. What does what? What goes with what?
Wheatgrass in Containers
We are surrounded by miracles in life but very often we just don’t see them or realise that they are there for the taking! Here is your chance – grow, juice and then drink green wheatgrass juice and invite your own health miracle into your garden space and your life. Add it to your smoothies too!
Oh how I have longed for a new gardening product to come into the shops - one that can be useful, innovative, adaptable and a good buy for the budget. Guess what? I think I have found one. It is called the CLevva Container™ and it would be a foolish notion to ignore this amazing invention!
Easter Lily Pots
Beauty, grace, fragrance and charm - and all in one lovely plant; not much more you can ask for and yes ... you will get this and more in an Easter Lily plant. Its shapely white trumpet blooms and deep green foliage are a real treat and then when the blooms fade you can plant it out onto your patio.
Broccoli and Carrot Containers
Shop bought vegetables just do not stand in the same queue as your own home grown ones - that fresh, delicious, healthy crunch that comes from your own container cannot be beat as they say. Companions are mates and two good ones are Broccoli and Carrots, easy to grow and so versatile in the kitchen!
Twilight Container Gardens
That magical moon makes much of your flower choices when it comes to establishing a fragrant and serene twilight container garden - just for you to enjoy as you wind down from your busy day. What better place than your own deck or patio or balcony where you are surrounded by sweet gentleness?
String Gardens - Kokedama
String gardens or Kokedama are suspended moss balls of beauty – and thus they don’t take up the space other plants might. More than that they are creativity at your finger tips! An intriguing project, they are great for bringing the outdoors inside and for taking the inside outside! Give it a go!
Herbs in Action - BASIL
Do you grow BASIL? And what do you want to do with it? Use it for foodies and kitchen treats? Use it for garnishes and cocktails? Use it for colour and prettiness in your containers? Use it in your home? – Yes please! Well there are many varieties, we are spoilt for choice so choose yours now!
