We inherited my grandparents' old market garden & did our bit to turn semi-rural St Ives into a suburb. The front yard was roses, dahlias & a vast lawn. Avocado, broccoli & prickly pear grew out the back. Relic plum and fig trees were given their own tennis court sized bird-proof fence. Exploring bush around this leafy area maintained the exposure to plants. But it was the gift when I was ten from my aunt of a cyclamen so white, swan-like & alien that made me want to grow things.

I have found polystyrene fruit boxes are excellent for growing vegies in. I currently have dwarf beans, strawberries & some white queen squash growing.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
