Janet's garden (Green Urban Living)

Janet's garden (Green Urban Living)

New Zealand > Hawke's Bay
Our garden is in sunny Hawkes Bay. It is on a gentle slope facing north. It is organic and based on low maintenace permaculture principles. I have 'crop circles' ( round gardens built with the no dig method). I use chicken tractoring to do all the maintenace. My chickens go on to each crop...

Living the good life - chickens and more

New Zealand > Canterbury > Woodend
We have aimed for easy care, our recreational areas require only an occasional weeding to maintain them. we have a lot of native plants and tall trees. We don't spend a lot of time with annuals etc. Our vegetable area is fenced off so that the hens can't have more than their share.

Felix and Melissa's edible and native garden

New Zealand > Canterbury > Christchurch > Hoon Hay
We enjoy growing a combination of both edible and native plants on our 1/4 acre section in Christchurch. The back yard was just grass when we bought the place 6 years ago, but since then we have established about 200 different native and introduced species on the property! A small glass...

JAC's Garden

New Zealand > Canterbury > Christchurch > St Albans
Our lawn area is surrounded by flower beds interspersed with veges and a few native plants. The big vege planter is my favorite and provides optimal drainage and growing conditions for all sorts of yummy edibles. Along the house our roses don't only look beautiful from the outside but ...

   

Pots, planters and greenery

Pots, planters and greenery

New Zealand > Auckland > Auckland City Area > Avondale
All our gardening is done in pots, as we are renting and our landlords really don't want their lawn dug up for vegetables! Container gardening has advantages and disadvantages. It makes it easy to control weeds and pests, easy to harvest just by walking out on the deck, and you can move...

Garden Collars "in action"

Garden Collars "in action"

New Zealand > Wellington > Waikanae
Since the collars are self-stacking, it's very easy for me to add height to my raised garden beds - it gets really windy sometimes, and one extra collar on top provides quite sufficient shelter.

New Zealand > Wellington > Lower Hutt > Stokes Valley
an overgrown jungle of weeds, with wonderful and delicious surprises poking out in between the buttercups. many experimental methods started and then somewhat abandoned, still we manage to produce a few veges and lots of apples.

   

The Plentiful Pear

The Plentiful Pear

New Zealand > Canterbury > Christchurch > Addington
We've been so lucky to move into a flat with a garden mostly set up, a grape vine, a pear tree, a black boy peach tree, an apple tree and a crab apple tree. The garden is intentionally wild, I like to call it permaculture. That or I'm just lazy :). Either way, we seem to enjoy bountiful ha...

I Love Spring

I Love Spring

New Zealand > Canterbury
Some recent photos. The foxgloves under the clematis are about to bloom. The irises I planted in memory of my father - then forgot to divide the bulbs last year. Cistus (rock rose) and lavender are good for the dryer front section which doesn't get so much water due to roof overhang.

My Therapy as Cure garden

My Therapy as Cure garden

New Zealand > West Coast
I have always had a love of growing veges for home use & making all kinds of preserves from what I produce. However, I have cut my teeth on how I go about things while living in a remote coastal area where my car was a boat in the outer Marlborough Sounds. There, I was fully self sufficien...

Chaotic edible landscape

Chaotic edible landscape

New Zealand > Wellington > Wellington > Khandallah
A small edible garden, focused on vegetables, herbs and soft fruit, with a few miniature fruit trees. Also plenty of flowers to attract pollinators. I've crammed far too much in, but I like it that way. I've been growing vegetables for most of my life, but this is my first serious foray...

   

Cosy Courtyard Kitchen Garden

Cosy Courtyard Kitchen Garden

New Zealand > Canterbury > Christchurch > Addington
This is my first garden, in the courtyard of my wee unit in Addington. I have lovingly tended it for the past few years and am finally finding my feet... I think... As my confidence grew I have gotten rid of some barked-over areas and made more room for planting, however, as far as actual ...

This has already been a vege garden but I have started it over for the next season. Yesterday (sunday 28 feb)I pulled out the old plants which had fruited and done their job, dug over the soil, added some organic compost and lime then dug in again and gave it a good water. Today (monday 1...

Tuiet's garden

New Zealand > Auckland > Waitakere City > New Lynn
Since my family moved here 25 years ago, this garden has been in place. As a child my mum would plant maize so my sister and I could play in it. It has always provided us with fresh vegetables, berries, herbs and fruit. In recent years we have stopped tilling the soil and encouraged self s...
