Roses in Containers
No container garden is complete without at least one rose, any style, any colour and any pot. Fragrance? Style and Elegance? Versatility? Celebration? You have all of that in a Rose – arguably a queen of flowers. Once you have the basics in place these beautiful flowers will give you much pleasure.
Safety in the Garden
Common or garden sense? Do we always use it? There are times when we are in a hurry or we need to finish a job, and sometimes we just run out of time, or we don’t read the instructions and like the clever bumble bee go ahead and fly anyway. Here are some to safety gardening measures to consider.
Savvy Gardening - Save Seeds
Seeds of success in our lives depend on savvy habits and so too with gardening – so do you save seeds from season to season or do you go for seedlings? Saving seeds saves your favourites and could be the start of a heritage collection; it's thrifty gardening too so start seeding!
We use our senses every moment of the day as they vie for a position in our world space. Sight, sound, touch, hearing, taste and all the nuances of each, play vital parts not so? Thusly having been said, what better place do we have to explore them than in the container garden? Come join us!
Snippets, Tips and Tricks for Gardeners
Thank heavens for gardeners’ notebooks, stories, diaries, catalogues, and word of mouth sharing. Add to this experimental gardening; seasonal trials, gardening lore, trial and error conclusions and just plain common sense. Our first selection of snippets and tips for container gardeners follows.
Spice Pots - ANISEED
Some spices suit containers better than others...and ANISEED is one of them. Instead of ‘fresh off the supermarket shelf' spice, grow your own this time! Want to ‘stir up some bodily lust?’ Ward off the evil eye? Flavour a medicine? Catch mice? Keep away a nightmare? Cure hiccups? grow some Anise!
Spinach and Dill Pots
What a joy it is when you can cook or bake something with your own home-grown produce, it really does just taste better. Besides, you know the joy of creativity and I say that is what Container Gardening is all about. Spinach Pie - my my, you can make your own and grow your own ingredients. Goody!
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!
Super-Fruit - STRAWBERRY
Talk about a Super Food? Well Strawberries are certainly one of them and have so much to offer it all sort of trips over itself to get in line, and what an easy line it is. Not low maintenance as your strawberries do need regular care, but the benefits of growing your own are just to good to miss!
