Our Sustainable Food Garden Display gives garden ideas on just how you can make the most of a small space to create an urban farm. It incorporates a raised vegetable garden, herb garden, useful indigenous plants, chickens, a model bee farm and rainwater harvesting system.
Please come and visit us to see this display (open from the 15th November and throughout the Christmas holidays) and get great organic gardening tips as well as ideas for landscaping for your garden.

Where the light changes, is the best place for your succulent and rock garden. It does not matter if it is a dry, and problematic area.
The creation of that special place is a labour of love, because creating mood and feeling in a garden is the same as weaving a tapestry of colours. It takes a lot of patience and planning, but don’t let that put you off.
If your space is against a wall, you could paint a desert scene that flows into your bed, especially if your rockery is too small to plant a large Aloe.

Recommended Indigenous Trees for Pools - Part Five
I am regularly asked to recommend trees for around a swimming pool. Most people ask for an evergreen tree.
I would like to make an argument for deciduous trees. Remember that although trees may be evergreen they do drop the old leaves and grow new ones and this is an ongoing process throughout the year, while a deciduous tree drops all its leaves in a short space of time.
At Random Harvest we have an amazing number of birds resident or regularly visiting us. I believe this is because we have so many different types of habitat here on the farm.
We have planted a big variety of indigenous plants. The way they are planted and the variety help create the habitat that the numerous species of birds use.
