Gardening A-Z

As much as we’d all love acres of space for a garden, sometimes it’s just not possible.

It’s official. Summer is over. March is here, and with it comes the official start of autumn. Not long now until the incessant wind, rain, and dark days of winter arrive.

Ok, so maybe I’m overstating it a little. But the days ARE getting shorter and if you’re a fan of spending time outdoors, like I am, that can be a little depressing.

So this autumn, I’m going to brighten up my home and bring the garden inside with a pot of stocks.

Instead of swinging by the service station for a decaying bouquet this mother’s day, make your mum a living flower arrangement that she can enjoy all winter long. After all, it’s the thought that counts.

“Indoor pots look great and are more cost effective than buying cut flowers,” says Awapuni gardening guru, Tod Palenski.
