My Master degree in Agricultural Sciences helps me to know soil types, nutrient absorption,etc.

Grow your own soil

I have 'grown' my own deep, well-draining, fertile soil. It was easy peasy. I was totally surprised of how well it worked.

What I did: I build a raised bed and added thick layers of mulch and horse manure. The mulch I got for free from a local landscape company (they would have to pay to bring it to the recycling plant). The horse manure I got for free from the Ambury Farm Regional Park/ Riding for the Disabled in Mangere Bridge. The mulch is full of carbon and the horse manure full… Continue

Hi, I noticed on another page in here that you have some of the following...Raspberry Ivory - Rubus idaeus (Kiwi Gold) and Berry Delight - Hybridberry Marahau.  Just wondering if you might have any small seedlings/plants you would be interested in sharing/selling.  I'm just starting out - so not sure if I have anything you are looking for, let me know.  Happy to pay for postage...I'm in Rotorua...Many thanks...Nat

HI Sigrid,
Hope you had a good holiday break. I thought about having a sort of open day at Sudesh's next week, advertised on Ooooby. ideally next Tuesday or possibly Thursday. The idea is that I could be there in the afternoon, and someone else could also come for an hour in the evening, to greet anyone who would want to have a look and discuss what the garden is all about. Are you available?
We are plannning a Urban food production design workshop in the first week of March, with Finn Mackesy. If you are around, come and meet us tomorrow afternoon between 1 and 2.45pm.
See you soon

Hi Christy, yes I will come to the GLFM on Sunday with rhubarb, oregano, kaffir lime leaves and boysenberry. Talk to you then.

Hi Sigrid, the grow project that you mentioned in Meadowbank/Remuera sounds interesting. Perhaps we could talk further about this/ visit the site. Are you going to be coming to the GLFM this weekend?
