Easy Gardening and Well Worth the Effort

Michele from Avonhead

For the record, the SPRING ONIONS which were planted out in January have grown huge and have flourished all over winter so that we have been eating them continuously.

They are now flowering but still have plenty of good leaves to harvest. So this HERB is certainly a great choice and a useful addition to many cooked meals and to salads. They are always on hand and always fresh.

They grow very slowly and I find that I can buy a pot of them for around $5 with over 100 plants so I don't tend to grow from seed any more. A good rule of thumb is to keep them well fed.

For more regular advice on HERBS and how to manage them in your garden and how to use them join the Canterbury HERB Society, only $15 per year. Meets every 4th Thursday of the month 395 Memorial Ave, Burnside/Avonhead.

Please sign the petition to oppose-
