I am so proud of the garden this year 💪🏽 Normally I seed my own but this year I got store bought. That's okay I still have a good variety of veggies, leafy greens and fruits. Took many years, money and time to sculpt the land the way I want but now that it's set it's so easy to top soil and plant each spring 🤗🌱 Keep in mind that if your gonna transplant do it in the early morning or evening and water right after. Keep well watered till roots settle in. Try to get your transplanting done before mid June or plants will start to look yucky in stores and won't transplant well in heat 🌱 If your gonna seed, do it soon so your plants have time to mature. I wouldn't bother seeding with any melons, squashes, pumpkins or cucumbers at this point in the season. It's too late for anything that needs to grow big and likes to germinate in cool soil. But it's not too late to seed peas, tomatoes, leafy greens, onions, herbs. Anything that grows fast and light 🏡⛏️ #gardener #gardenadvice #gardentips #gardenlife #seeding #planting #transplanting #organic #homegrown #growyourown

Cherries Jubilee Baptisia - the newest addition to my garden. Baptisia is a great and often overlooked plant. With its interesting pea flowers, decorative pods and hardy tap root that does a wonderful job busting up or clay soil it is a stellar addition to any garden. #wigardening #prairieplants #gardendesigntips #gardenadvice

Please can someone who knows about gardening help me.. what is this? Presume it’s a weed as it’s taking over my flowerbed and growing so fast. Can’t recall planting it either.. However it’s not ugly and I quite like it.. it has little prickles on the leaves- pretty sharp. Anyone know? #garden #plant #gardenadvice #isthisaweed

The blossoms are starting to fall off our "picnic tree" as of today. An additional blessing to being an at-home mom right now is being able to fully experience each day's changes through the seasons. Difficult in winter, but incredible the other 3 seasons. .

Gem is warming up on the Aussie Blue ❄️With the cold weather there usually comes a dry period. Your lawn needs a deep watering once a week, around 10-20mm 💚

To be honest, I don’t particularly like broad beans but I decided to take a punt on this variety because if its name, ‘Crimson Flowered.’ As you can see, the name is well earned! I’ve read that interplanting onions between them helps keep pests at bay - has anyone tried this? I have got a load of red onions in the greenhouse which aren’t quite ready to go out yet - it could be my red corner if that does work. #allotment #growyourown #gardenadvice

Who here specifically sets time aside each week for self care? For time for themselves to recharge and reconnect? .
.
This is something I've struggled with my whole life. I've always put everyone else's needs before my own. And then I would wonder why I was so burnt out and irritated all the time. .
.
One thing I've learned over the last year or so is that it's ok to take time for myself. Not only is it ok, it's necessary for me. I need to be able to recharge and recenter myself. If my "batteries" are low, how can I serve others and be able to give them 100%?
.
.
One way I like to practice self care is gardening. Digging in the dirt and being one with nature helps me so much to just relax and recharge. It's a time for me to be able to think. .
.
Gardening gets me out of my own head and helps keep me grounded. We all spend lots of time “in our heads” thinking, worrying, and planning but gardening gives us time to connect with something tangible and real. .
.
It’s hard not to love life while you’re gardening! I love that I can see the transformative results of my hard work. So many things that we spend time on have temporary results. A garden is satisfying because it builds on itself – plants and trees get bigger and healthier, and your garden gets more beautiful over time.
.
.
I find it to help me be more in the present moment. When we are planting, watering, weeding and harvesting our senses are fully engaged in the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and tactile sensations of our garden.
.
.
What are some ways you practice self care?

We're seeing growth around the garden and unfortunately that also applies to weeds. It's important to keep on top of weeds now so they don't take control of your garden. .

How beautiful are the last of these autumn days? 🍁🍂🍃 The nursery is looking stunning and we have a huge range of beautiful plants ready to be planted up while our Perth soil is still warm.

Autumn is the best time to plant as the weather is mild, soil still has warmth in it and we have a long lead up until the summer heat comes along. A good 6 months to establish new plants 🌱
Come down and see how we can turn your garden into an autumn paradise.

I’ve had a super productive day in the sunshine ☀️ at the #allotment 🌱and #plot94m is looking tidier by the day... 🌼 I shifted ALOT of soil today and finished creating last two beds; laid a new path and weeded! But huge gesture by the boy @marceb83 who gets MAJOR boyfriend points for transforming my neglected back area in to a deck...levelling out the ground was no easy job and it’s looking AMAZE!

Anyone else think gardening can be exhausting? I'm so thankful I have my supplements that provide natural energy! I don't think I would've been able to do as much as I did without them. .
.
Spent almost all day out back. Planted a bunch of seeds, got our garden weeded (with the help of our chickens 😆), and several plants planted. Oh, and of course Bella got her belly rubbed. .
.
She's such a cutie, although rather demanding at times 😬. .
.
I feel so blessed to have the life that I have. Being able to grow and raise my own food, to have my own little farm, to finally be at a point in my life where I can truly say that I love and accept myself, and to be able to help others learn to do the same. .
.
I'm so excited to see where the rest of this year takes me!

Happy Sunday everyone. Look at this stunning Pink Knock Out Floribunda Rose 🌹
With a cluster-flowering habit and a beautiful foliage to highlight the bright pink flowers, this rose can be planted in borders or clustered en masse to great effect.

Deadhead the spent flowers to encourage new growth and more blooms.

Any gardeners out there? Anything other than £20 a packet Nematodes that can get rid of these Leather Jackets? They ate the roots to two of my fav plants, and apparently Nematodes specific to them is the only thing that will get rid....if I do nothing, they'll eat everything else too 😩 Fancy having a cool name but looking like a soft penis!

Here is a glorious Yellow Tree Peony (High Noon), with abundance of petals, protecting the nectar and pollen. Adding to the visual impact, its highly frangrant.

Posted in celebration of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Wedding today - Meghan chose the peony as her Wedding Flower, glorious choice.

Where you are, whatever you are doing have a great weekend 😀.

Phalaenopsis Orchids are a popular indoor plant but people sometimes have difficulty with keeping them alive.
Our top three tips to keep them alive are;

1) Keep their root space restricted. Orchids roots don’t like excessive amounts of room. As a bonus, orchid roots spilling over a pot look amazing👌🏻 2)Water the soil minimally with a garden trigger sprayer. Keep the soil moist but not overly wet💦

3) Remove spent flower canes. This will spur the plant to put out new growth💐🌿 #dawsonsgrownandguaranteed #orchids #phalaenopsis #phalaenopsisorchid #exotic #perthisok #perthgardens #indoors #indoorplants #gardentips #gardenadvice

🐞 just chilling on the pea trellis, hunting for its next meal! 😊 I saw so many ladybugs in my garden today! They're one reason I hesitate to spray anything in my garden, even if it's organic. Ladybugs and other pest- eating insects can be killed by our intervention, plus we take away their food source. So before you spray or apply anything, just take a moment and think of your beneficial insects first. 😊 .

Last weekend's project and future [mostly] hosta bed. Swipe to see the before (screen grab from Google maps so it's not the best before...sorry). I'm going to be sharing a lot of yard/gardening projects over the summer. 🌱 Just curious...is anyone interested in me sharing HOW they are done (everything is DIY), what SUPPLIES were used and the thought process behind the design/project...or should I save my time and just share pics? Please let me know! 👇🤗

Topping peppers 👉👉 Cutting the top leaves and first blooms off your pepper plant will encourage bushy growth and ultimately better production.

We planted this currently-in-bloom Golden Spice Pear tree last fall, which required moving a [probably] 15+ year old peonie whose tubers [roots] were literally 2 inches wide at some parts.🌱 Unfortauntely, quite a few chunks of roots ended up in the compost and I was afraid that between this and the fact that peonies despise being moved, that it would go into shock and die. I don't know if it's because I carefully amended the soil with compost and bonemeal to feed on, or just luck, but the peonie is looking great so far with more than 10 eyes now growing 10 inches high. The pear tree though...half of it is not even leafing out. 😣😥 Followed every nursery instruction step-by-step. Has anyone had this problem...and WHAT did you DO?! Help! .

We have been having a ton of rain lately which means our tiny little plants have been growing rapidly! 💦🌧️
.
.

Since we’ve been eating a ton of zucchini and squash lately I thought they would be the perfect additions to our new garden bed! These plants were replanted— not grown from seeds like the rest of our garden. However when we planted them 1 month ago they were tiny! 🥒🍆🥕
.
.

Aren’t the flowers that bloom gorgeous? 🌼

Have you ever seen a zucchini this huge before? 😂🤷🏻‍♀️

Please send me some yummy squash and zucchini recipes! I need to try something new! .

Get ready for summer! Here are some tips to keep your Encores healthy in the summer heat:
✔️ Refrain from pruning and fertilizing
✔️ Keep plants well mulched
✔️Irrigate slowly and deeply
Good news is Encores are very adaptable to both sunny and shady locations. And they like some sun (4-6 hours) for more blooms!

Seeking advice! Florists & gardeners!! I'd like a cutting bed in my garden. This is my spot. I think 2 possible options ... 1. Raised rectangle bed with sleepers running along the fence, similar to opposite side of garden (see 2nd photo) ... 2. A more circular bed, to mirror adjacent corner of garden (see 3rd photo). Any thoughts? Would one be better than the other? Garden is south facing, this side is East facing.

Hallelujah! Almost half of the garden is now mulched! 🤗 Now I can spend my garden hours on something besides weeding! 😄I've tried several different types of mulch, but I always come back to wood chips. To read my honest opinion of the four types of mulch I've tried you can click the link in bio. I wrote about the pros & cons of wood chips, straw, hay, & pine needles. (Also in my bio is a link to download my A-frame trellis plans that you see in the photo. 😊) What's your preferred mulch? .

Did you know that different plants require different pH levels? I didn't, until recently. .
.
I've always just tilled the dirt, planted the seed or plant, and watered and fertilized when needed. Doing it this way, I usually got pretty good harvests from my garden. .
.
But, I've been doing some research and it turns out that pH levels can either hurt or help your garden. .
.
Here are just a few things I've learned:

1. Different types of crops each require different levels of soil acidity. The sensitivity of plants to soil pH varies a lot
.
.
2. When your garden soil is too alkaline or too acidic, the necessary nutrients your plants need won't be available no matter how much fertilizer you add. The acidity greatly affects the plants’ ability to take up more nutrients from the soil as well as ensuring that soil organisms thrive healthily.
.
.
3. Most garden or nursery stores will test the pH of your soil for you. If you want to do it yourself, you can buy a simple pH test kit. Most hardware stores have them. .
.
You can also do a test at home to see if your soil is acidic or alkaline. Simply get some dirt from your garden, mix some distilled water in it until it's like a loose mud. To see if it's alkaline - add white vinegar to it. If it fizzes, it's alkaline. To test if it's more acidic, do the same thing but with baking soda. This won't tell you the specific level but it will give you an idea of what general pH it is. .
.
4. After you have determined your soil’s PH, you just need to amend it accordingly. There are different materials that you can use in your garden to adjust the PH of your soil as highlighted in the picture.

What's the perfect soil for raised beds? 🤔 Ask 10 different gardeners and you'll get 10 different answers, but I'm a proponent of using what you have and amend as necessary. In this new raised bed, I used mostly native clay soil from my own property. It probably contains broken down organic matter like sticks and brush, too. I also added chicken manure over the winter and dusted the top with homemade compost. 💲Cost? $0. Look how happy my tomatoes are, and you can compare their growth by swiping to see where they were just 10 days ago. So, here's my advice for raised bed soil, especially if you are on a budget: 🔸Use what you have. 🔸Make sure it drains well. 🔸Incorporate organic matter. 🔸Adjust as needed. .

Cutworms! 😠 I am sick of seeing my corn sprouts chewed at the base. (Swipe to see the damage) Since I overplanted I had some leeway, but enough is enough! So I spent all evening transplanting sprouts that were too close together to the bare spots, and I placed a toothpick along the stems. I hope it works! 🤞

Pole beans are coming up but look a little yellow.....we had a spell of cold after we planted. Does anyone know if they are ok? #gardenadvice #gardenadviceneeded #garden #gardening #vegetables #spring #permaculture #homestead

Honey 🍯 bees 🐝 adore this plant. I bought it reduced to 50p at a local garden centre as it was pot bound but have no idea what it is. Anybody have a idea, as I'd like to buy more. #gardenadvice #bloomingplant #foodforthebees #gardeners
