We have introduced a raised garden concept and as a result have some very colourful lines on display for winter.  The idea of the raised garden is to prevent bending over in the garden, making it so much easier, especially if you have a smaller  block of land or courtyard and would love to grow your own fresh vegetables and herbs.

A raised garden bed can be turned over annually, or seasonally as we plan to do.  Our winter garden is very colourful, and has some great winter vegetables.

Minuet Lettuce is easy to grow and you can harvest the leaves on a daily basis.

Italian Parsley for fresh homemade soups.

Tuscan Kale is excellent for stews and soups.

Rainbow Spinach colourful in the garden and in your favourite dish such as a stew.

Carotts always popular in the vegie garden and fun for kids to grow.

 

When it comes to vegies we all know fresh is best, and there is nothing more rewarding than harvesting your own home grown vegies.

 

Raised or slightly raised garden beds are best as they prevent ponding or puddling of water and making the soil too waterlogged.

 

Step 1

Select a sunny position in your yard and remove the grass.

You’ve picked a sunny spot, now add some gravel or drainage ash

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2

Spread old cardboard and newspapers on the ground to help kill and control the weeds. (the worms also love this)

Raised garden beds are great for small spaces
