Today I’m going to touch on a companion plant that has served me (specifically my Chilli Plants) well, Limnanthes douglasii commonly known as the “Poached Egg Plant”.
This is my first new post in some time, this is due to a mix of writers block and I have just started a new apprenticeship, so I apologise for the delay in new content, I will get back into the flow of things now though.
It will be somewhat short post but it contains three (and a half) quick and easy tips to recycle in your garden but I intend to follow it up with more recycling tips throughout the year. Click onto the title or "read more..." to find out my three (and a half) easy tips on recycling in your garden!
Before I start, this article was made in conjunction with the 10 Most Common Butterflies list video on Wild Suburbia, It will give you a good round up 2019’s most sighted butterflies.
If you’re here from Wild Suburbia then you clicked through because you were interested in how you can help butterflies, this is the article for you, it is just a quick summary of ways to help and there are many more ways out there and I’d recommend also referencing the various conservation charity websites out there on how you can do more.
Bonsai trees are art, they’re created by strategically trimming trees in such a way that they mimic the appearance of most trees but at a smaller size.
Keeping bonsai trees is a relaxing hobby, you can spend a fair amount of time trimming your bonsai tree and shaping it. It is however a hobby that demands attention as the bonsai tree you grow will require regular cutting to maintain the small size. Bonsai trees are popular, you see a fair few on the shelves of garden centres, often commanding a high price (especially high considering they’re just strategically cut trees), through this high demand for bonsai, I fear there may be some unsustainability, it wouldn’t much surprise me if many bonsai trees grow to their natural size and are discarded. Speak to a group of people and you may find that some aren’t aware what bonsai trees are, not in the sense that they don’t know that they’re small trees, but they don’t know what they are in the sense of them being regular trees that are just well maintained to remain at their petite size.
This confusion around what bonsai trees are and how we grow them to size can be seen when you search “are bonsai trees…” on Google.
