Gardening A-Z

These days more and more Kiwis are growing their own herbs and vegetables. And more and more gardeners are taking a natural and organic approach to gardening. This means less chemicals and more thought about what plants might be beneficial to grow next to each other.

Mates, companions, pals or friends. Whatever you call it – marigolds, tomatoes, and lettuces like to hang in the same circles.

So this month we’re going to jump on the return of the ‘kitch’ and ‘retro’ bandwagon and plant some of nana’s favourites – marigolds, petunias and portulacas.
