This weekend I invite you to reminisce with me as I recall some interesting gardening facts and trends over the years that have shaped and influenced our gardens around New Zealand.
Gardeners question time: I'll be taking your calls answering your tricky questions and offering you some sage advice.
Garden essentials: this weekend you'll need your garden notebook as we discuss tool inventory and garden essentials.
This week we have Scotty from Tui with everything you need to know to grow a bumper crop of potatoes. For step by step instructions and all you need to know about growing potatoes, watch the Tui Time Potato Growing Guide.
Winter and potatoes go hand in hand; whether it is creamy mash or a potato gratin, let us celebrate the humble spud and talk about your favourite recipes and varieties.
This week I made a fabulous potato and cheese pie. And because we can’t stop cooking and thinking about pies, check out these fabulous pie recipes and a chance to win prizes.
Long, slow cooking is what works best in winter, and often it is beef or lamb. What flavours go best with beef or alternatively with lamb? Let's talk the herbs and vegetables and even wine that goes best with beef or lamb.
Got a favourite wine recommendation for beef or lamb? Then let us know.
Looking forward to your company from 6am Saturday!
Tony and Helen
