Welcome to my Blog!

As a horticultural writer I often come across people, stories, tips, tricks and real gems of information that never really make their way out of my notebook. I am hoping to share a few of these insights here as well as my own gardening experiences, which includes getting my children excited about plants.

I believe that a strong connection with the garden and our landscape when we are young is vital. I am hoping that educating my children in "Green Living" and "Smart Gardening" will provide them with the fundamental building blocks necessary for them to live long and healthy lives, while also doing their bit in helping to create a sustainable and green future for all.

Happy Gardening!

Fertilisers Explained

I was just doing some research when I stumbled across this excellent article on fertilisers and vegetables.

It is written by Derek Brooks from Worsley, Manchester for the National Vegetable Society in the UK. 

It talks about the importance of N:P:K and the many types of fertilisers available (both Organic and Inorganic).

It is an excellent article and a great read for vegie growers everywhere.
