The economy of green spaces

The economy of green spaces

Sometimes I find that the articles I am most excited about come from heated arguments, and this one is no exception. I had a well-known landscape designer approach me to be part of a pitch to a large building developer about adding landscaping and community beautification to all of his projects. While this may seem […]

Companion planting a great first-line of defense for your vegetables

Companion planting a great first-line of defense for your vegetables

My vegetable garden is officially planted. I have all of my seeds in rows; my tomatoes in cages and my potatoes are hilled…and so it begins…another season of growing vegetables, but also of keeping the bugs at bay. 2016 had limited successes because I tested several untried techniques, including some old wives tales which didn’t […]

Time to clean up the gardens for winter

Time to clean up the gardens for winter

The snap in the air signifies more than just the arrival of winter. It also means that it’s officially time to clean out the perennial beds.

Tips to ‘bee’ careful if you’re starting a hive

All around the world we continue to hear about the plight of bees. ‘Save the bees’ and ‘colony collapse disorder’ are pretty important things to be paying attention to in 2017 because up to 90 per cent of the food that we eat is pollinated by honeybees. This is part of the reason that more […]

Bag gardening  - good luck with that

Bag gardening – good luck with that

Immediately after my last article, I received several emails about other hot trends when it comes to gardening on social media. Bag gardens have been much discussed for a few years now but are definitely trending in North America. The theory behind them is that you slice down the centre of a bag of soil […]

How much water is right for your garden?

How much water is right for your garden?

When it comes to having a garden full of lush fruits and veggies, water is right up there with things you really need. The trouble is…too many people have different opinions on how much water is the right amount. Even worse, nobody really has the exact same growing conditions so how can someone tell you […]
