NZ Gardener Sets the Trend for Edible Gardening
As Gold Sponsor of Ellerslie Flower Show 2005, NZ Gardener is right on track with the current trend of growing your own vegetables, with their Special Edition entitled 'The Kitchen Garden - a practical guide to growing vegetables'.
Edible gardening is a significant component of this year's Show and a growing priority for Kiwis who are into healthy living and progressive gardening. The Kitchen Garden provides an all-you-need-to-know to get started growing edibles, with hints on everything from making compost to seed sowing.
The Special Edition also includes a comprehensive A-Z vegetable growing guide with easy tips for success, whether you have only a few vegetables and herbs in containers or are working on a large, productive plot.
The NZ Gardener stand at Ellerslie Flower Show will represent this fast-growing trend, showcasing the Special Edition with a unique edible gardening theme.
Sarah Beresford, Editor of NZ Gardener, says new hybrids bred for container cultivation mean people don't need a lot of space to enjoy the satisfaction of growing a range of vegetables and herbs.
"The Special Edition gathers together all the tips and advice people will need to begin harvesting fresh food from their garden," says Sarah.
Edible gardening is a dominant theme at this year's Ellerslie Flower Show, with several talented personalities speaking on the subject as part of the NZ Gardener Speaker Series.
Julian Matthews and Dennis Greville will intrigue with their discussion on 'Vegetables For The Kitchen Garden' and Andrew Boylan will delight with his talk 'Incredible Edibles - Let me bring your garden alive with fruit'. For herb enthusiasts, Tasmanian-based Kim Fletcher will share her expert knowledge in the area of herb gardening and how to use herbs to create theme gardens.
NZ Gardener Special Edition The Kitchen Garden is a must for those who are keen to follow the trend of edible gardening and sow the seeds for a healthier lifestyle and more innovative garden! With a cover price of $14.95 this Special Edition will be available in all good bookshops, supermarkets and from the NZ Gardener stand at the Ellerslie Flower Show.
