In Angus' words: 

Grow Your Own – How to be an Urban Farmer

Many of you, it seems, are keen on growing your own food. This interest seems to be most evident in city dwellers who are increasingly seeking a connection to where their food comes from, and also an awareness that a secure supply of food is not a given for the future. There is also an awareness that children are increasingly disconnected with how fresh food is produced and many parents want to do something about that. So……

Amazing herb garden

I have a west facing balcony and have two sets of these ( soon to be four). They are amazing, keeping the plants growing without even trying.

Know and Grow Pack

Great value pack with the book that provides lots of information on a range of topics to build on your gardening knowledge. Love the root pouch bags as easy to move to optimal locations and good depth for healthy root growth. The Olla makes growing my vegies in the hot summer weather so much easier as they have a constant moisture supply available. Easy to check on water needs and top up as needed.

Easy online ordering, quick delivery and easy to use. The olla pots are great if you’re away for the weekend and the weather is very warm :) the pouches are easy to move around your courtyard - I put mine on a trivet as the deck took forever to dry after a rainy weekend
