In this issue of Good Organic Gardening #8.1
This issue, Jennifer Stackhouse looks at ways to make a garden accessible and manageable for people with a disability.
Speaking of the horses and chickens, Claire Bickle offers some ideas on plants to grow for our pets, whether it’s to provide them with much-needed minerals and vitamins, help their digestive systems, keep parasites and bugs at bay or prevent stomach ulcers (horses!). She also gives us the goods on scented pelargoniums — so many to choose from, with all different kinds of perfumes.
Other featured plants include kale, parsnip, asparagus, bay laurel, celtuce and licorice covered by Jennifer; and from Melissa mulberry and feijoa as well as a range of dwarf fruit trees for the compact home orchard. Our power plant is another one grown more for its foliage, though it does produce edible fruit and spectacular flowers: passionflower, specifically Passiflora incantata.
We’ve gone a little crafty in The Shed with how-tos on braiding garlic and stringing onions. Not only is this a great way to showcase your homegrown alliums, but this method of storage makes them last longer because there’s better airflow around them than in a vegie bin.
Megg Miller looks at winter care for the chooks, plus we have the usual inspiring Gardening Folk profiles as well as the story of how a farming couple from outer Sydney made the changeover to organic growing. Read about the amazing things it did for their soil, their harvest and their lives.
