A rainbow of colours in flowers and a harvest of fruit and veggie heaven.......no not from the expansive orchard of my previous farm garden of NE Victoria but my pocket handkerchief garden in Warragul. Based on Peter Cundall’s no dig rotating four bed concept, measuring roughly 9m x 2m, this suburban veggie patch is designed to provide plenty for one person. Seasonal vegetables, herbs, lettuce, spinach etc grow all year round, and there are plenty
of tomatoes and cucumbers for relish and pickling. Espaliered fruit and citrus trees embroider fences with luscious apples, plums and oranges. The compact floral garden gives me both native nose gays for friends, elegant irises, roses and peonies for indoors and always a plant or cutting to give away. There are some new innovations but you’ll have to visit to see them. Open for Creative Harvest 2020 and part of the Saturday Bus Tour.
