NZ House & Garden - - GARDENS -

Soil type: Clay Wa­ter­ing the gar­den: We use a hand-held hose in dry weather and for the pots. Most sig­nif­i­cant plant in the gar­den: Hy­drangeas and box in all shapes and sizes.

Most-used part of the gar­den: The court­yard at the back.

Best ed­i­ble crop: Let­tuce and rocket in tubs. Best tip for other gar­den­ers: In­vest in good gar­den de­sign and im­ple­ment grad­u­ally. Help in the gar­den: We have a gar­dener who comes for a day, once a month. Mother’s Day thoughts on gar­den­ing: My mother, Norma, was a fan­tas­tic gar­dener and al­ways re­ally in­ter­ested in gar­den de­sign. Her last gar­den was a beau­ti­ful wood­land with big trees and a very rest­ful ef­fect. (Tim)
