Lavender posie

Aristonthe best of the best” as Nature intended.

I have been gardening since I was a very small child. I love all kinds of plants. I have been in the industry since 1992. My special interests are growing my own food, herbs and their properties, succulents, Lavender and Worm farming.
I start with the seeds I have saved, I then sprout them, I plant them in lashings of worm compost I have made from raw kitchen vegetable waste, mixed into the soil, and feed weekly with Worm Tea. My personal Honeybees pollinate the flowers. I also dedicate a small portion of the crop to Nature so I am never upset when I lose a plant to a garden creature.
I then reap the harvest and find different ways of using, cooking and preserving the food. I also allow a small portion to go to seed so that I can harvest it to plant the next season.

My outlook on life :

Once I spoke the language of the flowers
Once I understood each word the caterpillar said
Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the Starlings
…and shared a conversation with a housefly in my bed
Once I heard and answered all the questions of the crickets and joined the crying of each falling dying flake of snow,
I once spoke the language of flowers.
How did it go?
How did it go?
