Top Tip: Thin your Carrots
Last year my attempt at carrots was a bit of a disaster. They all grew into each other in gnarled knots and by the time I harvested them they were still tiny but tasted bitter 😦
Foam Box Carrots
The Carrots growing in the foam boxes (car-park garden) are doing exceptionally well this year! Even I’m surprised that they are happily growing in such a small space: Continue reading Foam Box Carrots

I’m riddled with WORMS!
During the raid yesterday, Chris gave me a foam box containing about 10000 worms.
14 Days to go
Today my friends Dad donated more to gardening efforts than a kick starter project could ever hope to achieve.
Chris and Trish are moving out of their awesome home and today I was let loose on the garden…
Chris filled my car with buckets of nutrients, compost and castings plus a foam box of about 10000 worms!
His garden was so awesome I was a bit overwhelmed. …
I took some cuttings of many different Hebes, and a white hibiscus (I think I messed this up- I took ‘softwood’ but think I should have taken a ‘heel’ in the cutting.
Chris has amazing Helebores! So many patches that are flowering like crazy- beautiful greens and rust colored varieties.
I was so overwhelmed I forgot to dig up couple of clumps. … hopefully i might be able to go back in the he next few days and take some clumps.
They move out this week so I may have missed my only opportunity 😦
Helebores or not, Chris’s contributions will give me enough cuttings and supplies to help create a new patch here at the flats and help make more people smile:-)
Thanks again Reardon Family
Pics tomorrow of worms and cuttings being planted out. ..
