  • It's time to plant your Leek seedlings!
Early sowings should be placed on a sunny indoor windowsill or into a greenhouse where the warmth will encourage quicker growth. As the seedlings grow you can if you wish separate them out and pot them on into individual pots.

  • Looking for a small-space solution for a few kitchen garden herbs? Check out this upcycled hanging herb planter! 
Created using old enamel camping mugs, simply drill a small hole in the bottom for drainage, and tie them all up using twine or string at different lengths to a hook or loop to hang on your fence or outdoor wall. You can use as many mugs as you like depending on how many herbs you’d like to plant!

WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY – Beat Air Pollution
There are a number of things that cause air pollution; household, industry, transport, agriculture, waste and more… Not all air pollution comes from human activity, it can also come from things like Volcanic eruptions, sand and dust storms etc. however the human activity certainly has a large effect! 
On the topic of waste and air pollution; 
Open waste burning and organic waste in landfills release harmful dioxins, furans, methane, and black carbon into the atmosphere. Globally, an estimated 40 percent of waste is openly burned. The problem is most severe in urbanizing regions and developing countries. Open burning of agricultural and municipal waste is practiced in 166 out of 193 countries.
Improving the collection, separation, and disposal of solid waste reduces the amount of waste that is burned or landfilled. Separating organic waste and turning it into compost or bioenergy improves soil fertility and provides an alternative energy source. Reducing the estimated one-third of all food that is lost or wasted can also improve air quality.
  • It's time to plant your Lupin Seeds!
June is the perfect time to plant your Lupin seeds (subtropical/tropcial) or seedlings (cool/temperate) to prepare for summer flowers. They prefer to be grown in moderately fertile well-drained soil in a sunny position.
