The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.

Garden Tip of the Month

Broccoli and Cauliflower

If you like broccoli, kale or cauliflower, consider planting the seeds in seedling trays inside. These two vegetables are easy to transplant, so when the time comes to move them outside, they’ll be hearty enough to survive cooler soil temperatures.

Health Tip of the Month

 

Raw Food

Eat something raw from the plant kingdom at every meal and make it the biggest part of the meal: vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains should be the bulk of what you eat.

Indoor Gardening

Amanda is a new young gardner from the USA.  A friend of hers recently wrote to us, 

"I wanted to send you a note letting you know how much a young woman I mentor via our Church enjoyed your page, https://bowralcommunity.garden/Links .She started a garden with her mother over the summer, and has really taken to it and has become quite an avid gardener. They  (have) been growing some herbs over the fall and winter, and Amanda has been doing a lot of research in her computer time as well, learning more about different plants and flowers and the care they require- she mentioned how helpful your page was and thought you'd be glad to hear! I recently noticed Amanda had been on your page for quite a while, and suggested we send you some positive feedback- Amanda also thought it'd be cool to share another article about gardening- we settled on this one- https://www.avasflowers.net/an-indoor-gardening-guide-for-flowers-herbs-and-more , about indoor gardening, herbs and flowers, and some basics!"

Thank you Amanda for your interest in our gardens here in Australia and the link to the indoor gardening web page. We encourage our gardners here in Bowral to have a look at this web link on Indoor Gardening. We also hope your love and enjoyment of gardening continues to grow.
