So you want to start a garden? No idea where to start? Then this may be the guide for you. “Gardening for Beginners” is a handy reference book with basic hints and tips for the new gardener. It contains no fancy terms, no superior expertise, just honest advice from someone just like you. There are sections on what tools to buy, growing vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers, dealing with pests, and working out which fertilisers are best for you.

It is written for a cool climate, but the advice is useful anywhere. The book is based on the quirky and informative blog Sarah’s Melbourne Kitchen Garden.

My Melbourne Garden Show Photos

I thoroughly enjoyed my day out at the Melbourne International Garden Show. There were some great exhibits and I have many more ideas for my garden. Although, may main aim for 2019 is to finish the paving down the side of the garden and do some much needed repair work on some of the old garden beds.

Here are my photos of the event:

“Preservation Pantry” by Sarah Marshall – A great guide for preserving

“Preservation Pantry: Modern Canning from root to Top & Stem to Core” by Sarah Marshall

This has got to be one of the best guides to preserving fruit and vegetables that I have seen in a while. In addition to easy-to-understand descriptions for preserving and canning, there are helpful suggestions for storage, recommendations for equipment and tools required, and even recipes using your preserves. Great range of preserving ideas. I am looking forward to preparing the white wine & tomato sauce for marina as soon as my next lot of tomatoes are ripe. I suspect that this will become an often-leafed-through book in my kitchen.
