Organic Gardening — Earthtalk at Awhitu, Organic Oasis and homestay south of Auckland in New Zealand

The flower gardens at earthtalk are rich in pinks, blues and purples, and under the orchard trees nasturtiums blaze with cheerful faces from pale gold through every orange to deep crimson and bronze. And we’ve just picked the first scarlet hibiscus flower and white Christmas lilies. The pohutukawa are bursting into crimson flower; their cousins the feijoa too.
All our early Orion peaches are now devoured – sweet white flesh, very attractive to birds as well as us; Christmas plums will ripen soon. Broad beans, asparagus and globe artichokes are flourishing, along with all the herbs; we’ve already dried the first batches of tea tips, lemon balm and calendula.
