These Bon bon variety of Calendula are such a bright orange. My infused oils and ointments look fantastic. Even when dried they keep their vivid colour. I have harvested continually during winter.

Spring is in the air. Plants are starting to thrive and look abundant. My sceletium commonly known as Kanna or Kougoed is flowering for the first time. The cancer bush is full of its pretty seed pods. A good time to be in the garden.


I love this quote ❤


What a beautiful setting for a vegetable garden. They don't have monkey, baboon and porcupine problems there! Grow your own food. It keeps you fit and is known to be good for your mental health and you get to pick your own nutritious yummy fresh food.

Planting a vegetable garden is one of the most valuable things we can do.

So happy with my tomatoes. So many shapes and colours! Just love all the different varieties I am trying out this season.


I am so grateful to all of you who come to the nursery or visit at Wild Oats Farmers Market. Let's make 2022 a year of being healthy by growing our own food and medicine.

While staying at Koensrust River Camp we enjoyed foraging and could not resist the Marsh Samphire. It is like salty asparagus. We picked only young stems and stir fried them in butter with lots of black pepper and a squeeze of lemon. Delicious, decadent camp food!


This pretty annual which has been used for over 2000 years especially as an anti-malaria medicine is now getting a lot of attention for its anti viral properties. Known as Sweet Annie and sweet wormwood, Artemesia annua is a good plant to have in the garden.

This is an interesting idea, especially to protect the flavour and benefits of softer plants. Definitely going to give it a try.


This is another lock down project. A broken ceramic bath cut down and a statue that lost its feet a long time ago, made into this planter that I am calling "Thyme to relax"!


We are delighted to be opening again from next week. We have a good range of winter vegetable seedlings and beautiful herb plants for sale. Start being self sufficient by growing your own food and medicine. This is our baboon and mousebird proofed tunnel that we built during lock down.

Visited the Klein Karoo to learn more about indigenous medicinal plants. Even though Calitzdorp is suffering a drought, we found quite a few species. We were excited about finding wild spearmint, growing on the river bank and enjoyed the tea that we made from it. We also made a tincture which can be used for digestive issues, congested sinus, as a spray to repel flying insects in the house and can be made into a poultice to draw infection.

An inspiring food garden at Chelsea.

The Chris Evans Taste Garden is designed by Jon Wheatley, who has asked friend of the Radio 2 breakfast show Mary Berry to help celebrate the tastiest plants growing in UK gardens, by growers on allotments and in many communities. Plants that excite and stimulate your palate and enhance your lifestyle and health and wellbeing feature in this garden.

Mary Berry, says: “The garden is bursting with delicious and tasty plants to whet the appetite and help you feel good by enhancing your lifestyle and health and well-being.”
