Keep it natural

Grow how Nature does - no dig with compost then mulch on top - no fertiliser needed.

- Liz

Use natural manure.

- Frances

Have a no dig garden.

- John

Set aside your recycled veggie scraps and egg shells for compost. You'll be surprised how much you accumulate and it's better used in your garden than straight in the bin!

- Carolyn

Do your research

Check out websites, magazines and TV shows. They have some great ideas you can use for your own garden.

- Gale

Gardening Australia is a great show. I watch it every week and have learned a lot. It's nice to see some of the ideas lead to good results in the veggie garden.

- Cathy

Position your garden so that it gets the right amount of light. It can make a big difference.

- Steve.
