Welcome! (Start Here)

If you’re new to urban gardening, we have a few in-depth, introductory guides:

The guide to hydroponic systems will be of use if you want a plug-and-play system.

Finally, familiarise yourself with this post about homemade insecticides. Creating the right conditions, then doing your best to get rid of pests when they arise, is more or less the whole battle.

We also have extensive reviews of numerous gardening tools.

And individual plant guides:

Also have a look at our monthly sow and groww guides for container gardeners:

I will add to this page as I add more content to the site.

    I read your blog on peat pots, but what are your thoughts on peat pellets? I plan on starting seeds in a heated cold frame. Peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, cabbage, squash, cukes. I know that I will need higher heat for peppers, tomatoes, and eggplant. But to achieve good contact with soil for heat and moisture, I was thinking peat strips/ Pellets would be best. Your thoughts please.

      Hey Doug, thanks for your comment! To be completely honest I don’t use Jiffy peat pellets. I realise that you get a lot for your money so I might give them a go. Could you clarify what you mean by “good contact” – I don’t see why pellets would work any better than other methods in a cold frame.

    I recently received the bonsai tree kit as a gift but it did not come with the instructions of how to grow it, is there a link on here that can help?

      Hi Mira. It’s actually another company that sells the kit. Nothing to do with me 🙂
