  • I’ve been picking 1-2 zucchini’s a day since late October, yet still planted more 🤣💛
Amazingly, we’ve been getting through them.. Roasting, steaming, stir-frying, making slices, fritters and frittatas, green muffins & pancakes for the kids, grating and blending into everything— whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner. Good thing they’re so versatile. 😆
Picked the first ‘Golden Zucchini’s’ this morning. Must say I’m pretty shocked at the fact I planted the seeds for these 6 weeks ago; and they only germinated exactly a month ago, today! 👏🏼😍

  • I found this Brasil Philodendron at the grocery store the other day & obviously had to bring her home with me 😍 Pothos & Philodendron varieties are on the easier side to care for, so they're great for beginners! .

  • We have a huge aloe vera plant in the garden and she had loads of little plants growing all around her. So we seperated them and replanted them individually  in the same bed. However the Perth sun was not kind to them and they looked totally dead but I just couldn't get rid of them. So I started putting them in pots and taking them inside and they're all recovering within 2-3 days. This little guy is the latest patient and is doing great. Swipe to see it's daily recovery🌿😷🚑👍

  • TOMATILLOS!
Tomatillos have their own packaging which protects the fruit (the outer husk), so none got damaged by the hail. When you peel them, they are strangely sticky, and produce almost a glue like substance - has anyone else found this? I assume it's another defence system of the plant against insects! It's hard to describe the taste as it's unique, but it is most similar to a fragrant sweet tomato, going to be delicious in salsas in mexican dishes 👌It can be eaten raw in salads or more commonly cooked into a tomatillo salsa verde. 
GROWING TIPS:
1. Choose a position with full sun, they can even handle all day blistering 12 hr+ summer sun, so you can plant in the hottest part in your garden. I've found them to be hardy low fuss plants, and not bothered by any pests or disease. They also look elegant and pretty, a nice feature plant. 
2. They are related to tomatoes but have a huge span and take up a lot of room - best to use one of those tomato cages or trainers to keep them contained.
3. Unlike tomatoes, they are not self-pollinating so you need at least 2 plants for maximum yields. 
4. Enrich soil with compost and gentle manure but do not fertilise with nitrogen rich fertiliser like chicken manure - too much nitrogen will produce a leafy plant without any fruit. 
5. They are prolific - each plant can produce kgs of fruit, so realistically 3 plants is enough for a family, with extras for bottling to enjoy as a sauce all year round!
6. When to harvest? It depends on the variety, but two things to look out for - either the paper husk turning yellow, or the husk splitting (this happens when the fruit gets too large and bursts through). Both indicate that they are ready to harvest!

  • They call this one burro’s tail. I call it “I don’t care how cute you are, you are a succulent and I will not get got.” I believe that’s the Latin name. 💁🏾‍♀️

  • CBG NOW AVAILABLE! Kilos and Seeds! 
The stem cell of the cannabis plant is here and we have it for you! Sometimes the most minor of molecules are the ones with the greatest impact. Such appears to be the case with CBG—the “first” cannabinoid that develops in cannabis. This seemingly insignificant cannabinoid is actually responsible for the creation of CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids catching the attention of scientists and consumers the world over.
Usually found in concentrations of <1% in most hemp strains, it’s no wonder this compound hasn’t received as much attention as others. However, that is quickly changing as more information is being unveiled about this once-overshadowed cannabinoid.
Below, we’ll take a closer look at CBG and the role it plays in the production of other cannabinoids. We’ll also explore its unique effects on the body, and how it differs from other hemp-derived cannabinoids.
What is CBG? CBG, or cannabigerol, is a phytocannabinoid. Unlike endocannabinoids, which are produced by the body, phytocannabinoids are sourced from plants like cannabis. CBG is what's known as a non-intoxicating cannabinoid—it doesn’t get you high.
🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱 🌱******************************************************DM us for more information so you too can get your hands on the mother of all cannabinoids!!!

  • Blumat Maxis Sizing •••
We normally don’t recommend using a Maxi unless you have at least a 10 gallon pot or are watering outside a small tree or big bush. Sometimes though, if a grower is planning to use a big pot later, they use the Maxis in the small pot too instead of needing to get both small and large Blumat sensors. This works in most places but in very dry climates and if too much of the sensor is above the soil level,  it can evaporate water out and create air bubbles that slow or even stop the Blumat from working.

  • Houseplants are not only beautiful but are a great source of happiness to help relieve stress. ⁣

What better to cure your winter blues than to bring in some green into your home. ⁣

Snake Plant also known as Sansevieria Trifasciata or Mother-in-Law’s Tongue is one of the easiest plants to take care of. Perfect for the winter-time,  snake plants only require watering once a month and can still grow with low-light exposure. ⁣

I potted seeds from the wisteria tree at our old home, which grew out of seeds from the tree at my parents’ home. Three generations I carry with me. It seemed to have dried out & died over the last year, but has suddenly returned to life... in the middle of winter!

  • Sweet potato leaves harvest. It rained last night and these look plump and delicious this morning . .
To grow this vine we peeled a sweet potato, buried the peels and out came the vine .
.
Ps we live in subtropical weather which makes it easy for this vine to sprout easily and anytime without much effort from us

  • This oxalis went dormant for a while and tricked me into thinking it might be dying. I really wasn’t sure. But I stopped watering it and left it alone hoping that it was just going dormant. I’m so glad it is coming back to life! I just noticed today how much fuller it looks and there are a bunch of baby leaves on the way ☘️🤍😍#oxaliscorymbosaaureoreticulata

  • one of the reasons i love houseplants is because it makes my space feel so peaceful. no matter what goes on during the day, i can always come back to my calming little greenspace. It doesn’t look perfect all the time, but I’m just happy that I carved out my own little East Atlanta Eden. 🌱 happy monday!

  • Another friendly reminder to chop chop chop and trade/share as much as you can. It doesn’t take much and it’ll grow back eventually. You can cross a plant off someone’s wish list while increasing the variety in your own collection, or simply pay it forward/pass it on. Join a local plant group to connect with other plant hobbyists, and if you have more than you need, why not post an offer for free cuttings or babies? There is something for everyone and a plant you might have an abundance of could make someone else very happy. You can even offer them to folks as a gateway plant.
.
The only reason my collection is the size it is today is because people have been so generous from the very beginning. The plants I did buy (like this Monstera deliciosa albo variegata I got for next to nothing) I decided to cut and propagate. I traded a couple and shared the rest. Granted, my plant currently has 2 leaves, but they’ll grow back. 😹 I think I managed to get at least 7-8 cuttings off my plant so far and it’s growing back (slowly but surely). I’m giving it a bit of a break but I’m always looking at my collection to see what else I can spare. If I can encourage you to do more of one thing moving forward, this is it 💚
