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!

Delicious Chocolate and Beetroot cake from Peninsula Fresh Organics

I have to share the delicious recipe I found on the Peninsula Fresh Organics Website for Chocolate and Beetroot cake. Yum!!

I used Willie's 100% Cacao and I think 160 degrees Celsius fan-forced would be best, but otherwise, could not fault this delicious cake. Try it at home and check out Peninsula Fresh Organics. They are a great local supplier, (if you live on the Mornington Peninsula), especially if you want fresh organic produce and goodies without the extra kilometers.

Thanks Guys ... you are saved in my favourites!
