View Full Version : How does your garden grow?
Do you have a garden?
We are not keen gardeners but i would love to have a vege patch.
We have planted beans and cauliflower.
Due to the rain, i think they are doing ok.
whats a garden.... :confused: i think that answers your first question :laughing:
i would love to be we live in a block of flats so its not possible...i was going to get some nice pots to put some flowers in but it just never happened :rolleyes:
We grow most of our seedlings in our 2 greehouses b4 we transplant them to the vegie patch.
The greenhouse helps so much.
We also grow lots of succulents. Beautiful ones that flower.
I love gardens. My MIL has an amazing garden. My parents did have an amazing garden until I started bringing my 2 dogs over and they have ripped it apart. My parents are not happy with me about that...
I loooove gardens and gardening. When we moved in to our little house there was nothing! and now three years later we have a lovely established front and back garden and a big vegie patch....when we move to the farm house it will be great, it needs lots of work (MIL is getting on a bit) but it has a beautiful, rambling cottage style garden......can't wait to get into it
We are gardeners and have managed to squeee a native garden, a small bed of roses, a bird avairy to rival the Taj Mahal, a thriving vege patch, a great patch of laawn,a kaffir lime and two olive trees into our backyard.
W ehave just finished with our summer veges and planted out our winter seeds so should be muching away on those in a month or two.
No better way to spend the weekend if you ask me!
Me and DF are right into gardening aswell... we have a huge hot house out the back that i grow my vege's in (very excited as my tomatos have started to get fruit) and DF runs his own home based Frangipani business of a weekend. He grows and sells his own Frangipani's. They are like his babies...have their own heater and everything :rolleyes:
In the years BC (before children) we always had a substantial vege garden but it kept withering away since we began reproducing ourselves! These days I have found it easiest to just grow a few things at a time. The children and I generally choose a few vege varieties and plant them in large pots. When they are grown, picked, eaten we start over. This way it is not a huge committment but we still keep a hand in.
A few simple ones:
peas, beans, carrots, strawberries and we also throw a few potatoes into the garden from time to time and they tend to self-grow.
We would like tomato, strawberries, spinach and maybe some herbs
Potato is good too(practical)
