Happy holiday season

On behalf of the team at Awapuni, I’d like to wish you a wonderful holiday season.

We’re hoping for lots of sunshine, and a spattering of rain for the garden. And we’re looking forward to fresh treats from our garden on Christmas day – salads full of homegrown lettuce and juicy tomatoes, with a side serving of freshly dug new potatoes and sweet strawberries to top it all off.

Whether you’re spending the silly season at home, at the bach, or somewhere really special, we hope you have a whole lot of fun.

Henri Ham and the team at Awapuni

Christmas presents that will grow on you

2009 has seen Kiwis don their gumboots and gloves and take to the garden in droves.

Nearly everyone knows someone who has dug out their back lawn, pulled out the pots or called in the carpenter to build the perfect vege garden.

Gardening has seen a surge in popularity mostly due to the economy. But here at Awapuni, we know once you catch the green thumb bug it’s hard to throw it off.

So this Christmas, why not give the gift that grows?

Whether it be vege, fruit, flower or herb seedlings, the choices are endless and the rewards are plentiful.

If you have no idea where to start or are feeling stuck for choice, why not ‘say it with flowers’ with cosmos and aster seedlings.

December is a good time to…

Plant and harvest! Back in July you may remember we discussed planting strawberries, well December is the perfect time to harvest all your hard work. Grab the kids, head outside and begin picking.

Towards the end of the month your new potatoes will be ready to dig up. For a real treat melt some butter with fresh mint and pour over boiled potatoes… yum!

If you’ve recently planted capsicums and cucumbers, depending on how warm the weather gets, they should also be ready towards the end of the month.

If you live in cooler areas of the country, you might need to wait until Jan to harvest.
