Im going to set my still up on this gorgeous sunny day and distil a patch of Lemon Balm (melissa officianalis). 30ml of the hydrosol in a litre of water with a little honey, lemon juice and fresh ginger is a warming winter drink. I hope I may even get a ml or 2 of precious oil to dilute in Jojoba oil.

If this is the sort of activity you may enjoy - check our workshop schedule

Waiheke Island Cheesemaking Course, by the lovely (and knowledgable!) Katherine Mowbray. Hosted by Owhanake Bay Estate

3 Cheeses from 1 bucket of milk with a 'bit' of mascarpone on the side.
Halloumi, Feta, Ricotta and Mascarpone, Sunday 24 June 12pm - 3:30pm, $120 per person, with tastings of boutique NZ cheeses for a light snack, plus some delicious Owhanake wines.

Katherine says "bring your friends and learn the skills together. Bring community back into your kitchens", which fits perfectly with our Island philsophy, and definitely something we are keen to support. I've been to one of Katherine's courses before and thoroughly recommend it.

For bookings (and more info) please email Katherine on

I'm running a workshop series on food growing for apartment dwellers, starting this Thursday. If you know anyone who lives in the central city who's keen on growing food, they can sign up for the workshops here: ('Gardening for Balconies', down near the bottom). Cheers!

I planted 5 spaghetti squash seeds to see if they would grow. They did. Unofrutnately, I have no room for them. Would anyone like them? I'm in Eden Terrace.

I'm currently ripping out agapanthus. What's the best way to get rid of the corms so that they don't resprout? I have kilos and kilos of them.

Also cannas available. Salmon-coloured flowers and deep red/mahogany leaves.

Hi Mike Beetroot can be planted this month in Auckland and warm areas take a look at my group what to do this month for monthly sugestions of garden chores as well as a list of flowers and veg seeds/seedlings to plant each month

Comment by Mike Matteucci on April 22, 2012 at 4:47pm

Thanks for that, I'll put a reminder in my calendar to prune olive tree early spring. Cheers.


Can someone give me advice on Beetroot?

I would like to plant some now, but I've read conflicting stuff on when to plant. I'm in Auckland (Pakuranga) and have a raised vegie bed with very good compost/soil.
Should I give it a go? any variety recommendations? or seed brand?
