World Environment Day

World Environment Day on Sunday 5 June certainly promotes a greater appreciation of nature, the environment and the universe. We witness, with horror man’s greed, waste and total disrespect for the environment. We can make a difference in our own gardens but bear in mind that gardening is a slow process as plants need time to grow strong roots before they make strong plants. So what do we do in our own gardens to contribute to WED? Gardens are a mini eco system and they achieve many positive things all by themselves.

Compost is gardener's gold

It's easy to make compost in a heap above the ground. Place large sticks on the ground as this will allow for air to flow into the compost heap. Pile up layers keeping lawn clippings separate by using leaves and twigs between as the lawn clippings tend to compact. Put all your fresh, raw kitchen peelings etc on the heap and a thin layer of garden soil occasionally. You can also add shredded paper or newspaper. Don't add cooked food, rather put that out on the bird feeder. Water each layer well and be patient. The compost should be ready in about 3 months.
