With the cost of living crisis making everything a little harder to afford, this 'Gardening on a Budget' Quarterly Special is the perfect gardening companion.
In this issue, true to Kiwi Gardener form, we keep the practical front of mind while harnessing a little creativity to solve some financial gardening challenges. We start with the oh-so-important planning process before running through different ways you can maximise your harvest every season. If you’re feeling daunted by planning a full year in the garden, try growing leafy salad greens. And if you’re ready to come in from the garden and cook up your harvest, Hana Kirk shares two flexible recipes that you can adapt to fit with your season-by-season produce.
We solve how to add new plants to your garden at minimal cost with ways you can multiply your growing while keeping your wallet in your pocket. Saving seed, taking cuttings and dividing plants all feature, as do grafting fruit trees and bringing plants back from the dead. Before you know it, your garden will be bursting with plant life!
And we show how even the more aesthetic aspects of your garden can be taken care of without maxing out your credit card.
