Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
Hi I have a very small garden but grow as much as I can fit in. I have been on this property 5 years and grow elderberry,(for tonics), berry delight,(jam), blackcurrants (cordial), strawberry, lemon, apples (granny smith, braeburn and golden delicious), feijoias,blueberrys, grapefruit, passionfruit. and have a small but packed vege garden. I am passionate about growing my own food and also make my own washing powder, soap, and toothpaste. I have an interest in medicinal herbs and make my own winter cold tonic.I would love to be self-sufficient but can only do so much with the space I have. I am interested in maybe having quails for eggs and have just come across aquaponics which I am keen to learn about and maybe set up on a small scale. Would be interested in knowing if anyone has one set up in Hawkes Bay as would like to have a look. I also love having flowers to bring in the bees and butterflies and love nature.

Dang it. I lost the post ! Try again.

Debbie, sorry for not replying sooner but I have been ill for most of the year and only now beginning to catch up on stuff.

I grow the taller variety of elderberry, but I have kept them pruned shorter.

I  do a lot of herbal stuff too... I have a dedicated room (a still room) for my herbs and I also do cheeses etc and distilling. All good fun...
