At our place we are pretty isolated from a lot of people here. It’s mainly our beautiful plants and us :-) Although we have to close our farm shop (Kumeu Flower Farm) we are still able to send plants to essential services only through our online orders. We are continuing to look after our plants more than ever, and giving them plenty more TLC!.

The garden could be part of a larger landscape or be the only available space. It shows what can be achieved within a small area and is designed to broaden the mind and encourage thought and innovation as to what can be produced within a small garden, while still paying careful attention to the environment and what effects man is having on it.
This garden has been designed to experiment with organic, sustainable practices including dense companion planting to assist in repelling insect and pest attack. Raising all vegetable plants from seed and recycling household and garden waste through composting and the bokashi unit will lower household costs and assist with reducing the carbon foot print created by the residence and other modern day activities.
The beehives not only provide honey for the family, but help with crop production within the garden and contribute to the neighbouring ecosystem.
MORE AWARDS TO BE ADDED :-) CHECK BACK SOON.
