Our Sustainability Journey Comments

  • Hi, Here are a few gardening tips that I have found useful. Place freshly dug kumara, potatoes or carrots into an empty planter pot then hose off and drain before taking inside. Use a butterfly net to collect the hard to reach fruit. If you are finding bending over to pick up feijoas difficult use a butterfly net to scoop them off the ground then put them into a container placed in a wheelbarrow. All easy on the back.
