Perfect Pieces

Acid brights are still a main theme in our little stone wagon shed gift shop ( pictured above left). We have gift and home wares rolling in from Melbourne leading up to Christmas so now is the time to get the best pick. We have scarves in all the colours of the rainbow and
 oil cloth handbags in spots and florals.

Pretty pastels are another theme we have chosen and our powder pink, blue and white hanging hearts and garlands are a gorgeous decorative touch for the home...Mum found them on an overseas buying trip so they are truly unique to us...Enjoy.
PS. Love lavenders? pop in now for a huge offering, including the one pictured here!

Dome it.

We have been having fun "doming" things in the gift shop this week with our new delivery of gift ware and glass domes from Melbourne. We have domed cute little rabbits, books and
 things found in nature.

 Our black board in the garden centre is always inspiring.

Spiral herb garden

Tim and I held a "Growing Herbs" workshop this week and we spoke about creative ways to grow herbs. The D.I.Y spiral herb garden was intriguing to most of the attendees. It's something easy that you can make with rocks, bricks or any material that can be up cycled.
The spiral garden is a great way to get kids involved in gardening and is something they can help build themselves. Use different coloured herbs like opal basil, purple sage and bright green chives. Improve biodiversity by mixing in a few flowering plants such as marigolds and nasturtiums.

Dad's Veggie House

Dad designed and created a enlosed veggie garden on his property in Murray Bridge.  He used  cement sleepers that he made to build up the veggie garden. For ergonomic reasons he built it up three sleepers high.

Dad created an island in the middle of the garden house which you can walk around. The island is filled with an abundance of leaffy vegetables. The perimeter is also filled with all kinds of eddibles including parsley, broccolli, spring onions and even ginger.

Outside of the garden house is a lovely freshly planted blueberry BURST. A new variety that produces extra large and flavoursome fruit.

Mum and Dad are proud of the chew marks in their cabbages!! No nasty chemicals are used to treat insects. This enables them to use the leafy greens for feeding their pet birds.

Dad shows Milton Vadoulis the hard work that has gone into making his dream veggie garden. The most important thing when gardening is getting the soil right and that's why Dad used alot of Plants Plus Groganic to improve the sandy loam when blending his mix.
