Much of the property is clad in native trees and the rest of the garden is almost vertical so growing space is at a premium and involves being a little creative.
There are lots of steps and pokey little corners harbouring some lovely treasures.
Today we spent some time digging out wild ginger which is a pest plant here (to be honest that means my honey dug while I pointed) and discovered a little herb garden with sage, lemon balm, scented geranium, mint and rosemary. I love these types of finds!
Plans to make a food garden in a steep terraced area by our guest bedroom are forming. It will be a bit of a mission digging out all the undesirables and replenishing the spent soil, but with some diligent composting we hope to be able to grow some nourishing food for our little family. It seems there are already some wild strawberries :)
Do you have a really steep or small garden?
Have you managed to grow food successfully?
