Today I had a chance to pop in to The Edible Garden Show! Luckily it is just round the corner :-). Sometimes it's so convenient to live in London. This event has really inspired me, not to mentioned that I have accidentally bumped into His Majesty Prince Charles!
So, I have been inspired to start seedings now (bought plenty of seed packs while there) or I will have to buy ready plants very soon. I also got inspired to help bees by creating this bee hotel!
I also participated in degradable pot making DIY organised by Garden Organic charity. I have posted a tutorial on how to make degradable pots using empty toilet paper rolls earlier this year. Using newspaper instead is an alternative.
Just follow there simple steps: 1. have compost, seed, newspaper and small bottle ready. 2. Fold the newspaper piece 1inch in and place the bottle on top. 3. wrap the newspaper piece around the bottle. 4. Fold in the bottom and press it against the flat surface such as table. 5. remove the bottle and your pot is ready! 6. pour the compost into the pot, then place the seed and then cover with a little bit more compost.
From now on urban herbs is my favourite herb supplier! They even had chocolate mint plant... whats not to like about that?
Feniton Foods has inspired me to grow edible flowers in my garden! Huge potential here, don't you think?
Although marigolds are not suitable for baking (perfect for salads however), I went completely crazy about them when I was buying the seeds. The good place to go is the edible flower shop ;-).
If you would like to visit The Edible Garden Show, you are not too late as it ends by the end of this weekend. Go here for details.
