Gardening A-Z

Here are a few tips for keeping your cut flowers fresher longer.

Did you know as well as being pretty, many flowers are pretty tasty too? People have been growing and eating flowers for centuries. In fact the parts we usually eat of broccoli and cauliflower are actually large flower heads.

With the cooler weather approaching you don’t have to resign yourself to a drab, dull garden.

“Hanging baskets planted with winter flowers will brighten up your garden in the colder months,” says Awapuni gardening guru, Tod Palenski. “You could even get the kids involved for a fun Easter or wet weekend project.”

On average, humans take 23,000 breaths everyday, taking in the scents of the surrounding environment. Even at this time of year, a myriad of flowers are being planted purely to delight our sense of smell.

“Having scented flowers in your garden at any time of the year is great, but in the winter it can really give your flower garden that much needed lift,” says Awapuni’s gardening guru Tod Palenski.
