Most gardeners have sustainability on their minds. After all, growing your own food is a huge step toward leading a sustainable lifestyle. Organic, chemical-free methods are inherently more sustainable — for human health, wildlife, the soil and the water supply — than non-organic techniques. But sustainable gardening goes beyond just using organic methods. From water and energy conservation to waste reduction and smart seed-sourcing, there are infinite ways we can make our practices more sustainable – Colourful Splendour Nursery has wonderful ideas of sustainability practices and suggestions – so pop in today and speak to our friendly staff to find out how you can GARDEN WITH NATURE
Here's my challenge to you this month. How 'green' can you be? World Wetlands Day on the 2nd February( theme – ‘Wetlands for a Sustainable Urban Future’) asks that we spend time cleaning up our local rivers and streams. Why not combine it with a day spent with your loved ones? You'll be honouring both your love of the environment and your love shared with that someone special – I told you that LOVE was in the air this month!
