Our gardening philosophy


Choose plants that are right for the site

Sunny? Shady? Sandy? Clay? Choosing the right plants for your conditions goes a long way to a successful garden.


Use no pesticides

Environmentally friendly ways of keeping damaging insects away should always be our first line of defence. Consider natural predators.


Plant native when possible

Native species help feed and house native fauna and have a much better chance of survival in our harsh climate.


Conserve Water

We used to say water was free. Not anymore. Water is not the endless resource we once thought it was.

Use chemical fertilizers as little as possible

Well, actually, you don’t really need to use them at all. Did I tell you about compost?
