    Tips For Gardening In Germany

    Lasagna Gardening. A No-dig Option

    With lasagna gardening it is done by sheet composting whereby the scraps and weeds and old boots if you like are all dumped in one spot... well, layered on top of each other. It's all recycled in one spot. It really looks like a pig's breakfast, but boy oh boy does it...

    When I finally have a place of my own i'd love

    to have a little allotment of my own to grow stuff. I have a herb garden and grow tomatoes and strawberries but don't really have the space for much else. My partner's father has a vegetable patch behind his house and I'm very envious sometimes.

    When I Get My Own Place

    I really never had any love for gardening.  My mother was always gardening, flowers mostly.  I worked for the park and was a gardener's helper and that didn't really turn me on, although I liked being outside.  But lately I have been having simple dreams. ...
