It’s the perfect time of year to select your seeds for next season. If you’ve stored last year’s seeds well, many of them will be viable in the spring. They are of course, ineffective if left in their packets so you might want to book a spring seed sowing session if there’s a risk you won’t get around to ordering or sowing them. You can also enjoy a seed sowing workshop with your friends – just get a group of six to eight people together and email me so we can arrange a time for you to come and sow some seeds together.
The choice of seeds available is so overwhelming, it’s sometimes hard to decide with which varieties to start. Kings Seeds has put together some helpful selections of vegetable seeds for gourmet, patio, organic, beginners, sprouting, children and small households (to name but a few). Even if you don’t want to buy the whole selection, choosing the varieties from these ‘set menus’ to buy as individual packets will help you on your way. Don’t forget to grow some greens for your chooks or your rabbit and guinea pig.
Dog lovers may have heard that there is now a medical reason to accept your dog’s kisses and it’s been proven that your dog cares about you.

Here are three combinations of venue and guests to ensure success – I particularly like ‘one person dining alone on a hillside’ (just about anywhere in Wellington).
