The pot display is taking shape...Just in time for our first open day on Sunday.
A tip for when you sow or plant tall annuals.
Plant spacing helps to ensure the entire plant receives enough of healthy sunlight.
It is easy for disease to spread from one plant to another if the plants are growing on top of one another, so plants growing too closely together are not as healthy as plants with enough space.
Physical address: 264 summit Rd, Bridle Park, Midrand, Johannesburg.

How often do you pinch/harvest your herbs in your gardens?
Did you know pinching plants is to force the plant into a fuller form?
By pinching back, you force the plant to grow twice as many stems, which results in a fuller plant. For plants like herbs, pinching back can help the plant to produce more of their desirable leaves, giving you more to harvest and enjoy in your food.

Dear Garden friends, how are you preparing for your winter and spring garden?
I love planting beans to use in bean soup in winter. This is a golden bean, I do not know its name. I am going to make soup with it one of these days. I will save some seeds 😊.
I simply love tulips! It is a pity they do not rebloom and have to be replaced every year. But they are so special that it is worthwhile 🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷

Lamb's ear- A favorite for growing with kids, the lamb’s ear plant (Stachys byzantina) is sure to please in nearly any garden setting. This easy-care perennial has velvety soft, wooly evergreen leaves that are silver to gray-green in color. The foliage is also similar in shape to that of a real lamb’s ears, hence its name. If left to bloom in summer, lamb’s ear will produce spikes of pink to purple colored flowers too.
Anthericum saundersiae- is a hardy, evergreen, clump forming, grass-like perennial that bears sprays of white flowers and seeds all year round.
Minuartia aurea- Appropriately named, as the small, needle-like leaves could be mistaken for moss. It spreads quickly via creeping runners, forming a dense mat in well-drained soil. In spring, small white flowers dot its surface. It can withstand cold winters.
Erigeron Karvinskianus- is an inexpensive, evergreen diehard that will remain in your garden forever. Once established, it has the ability to pop up all over the garden. Sometimes it takes a rest in warm weather and you end up thinking it has died, only for it to reappear and thrive. If you take good care of it, it will produce masses of tiny daisy flowers, transforming your garden into an exquisite fairy landscape.
PLANTS AVAILABLE ON SPECIAL AT THE HERBAL CENTRE✅✅

I enjoyed this project. With sponsorship one can do more of these food gardens at schools and teach our children and parents to grow to eat. I have done many other school gardens through SA Garden, the magazine I was editor for.
