Image by pasja1000 from PixabayImage by pasja1000 from PixabayThere is no need to be fearful of pruning your roses and there are no hard and fast rules. Always remember that you cannot prune wrong and it takes a lot to kill a plant. Although roses differ in growth habit the basic pruning routine is the same, and is done mainly to encourage rejuvenation, and to clean up the plant by removing old and diseased growth and shortening the bush. In nature an un-pruned rose will sort itself out, so all we are doing is encouraging nature and keeping it under control.

Kalanchoe blossfeldiana Image by Karolina Grabowska from PixabayKalanchoe blossfeldiana Image by Karolina Grabowska from PixabayAll Kalanchoes are popular plants for the garden and home, but the little ones, appropriately called “Flaming Katy” have become one of the most popular flowering succulents in South Africa and the world. People love to use them for instant colour indoors because they are easy to care for and are available all year round in full bloom. And, because they are inexpensive they can be discarded once they’ve finished blooming. However, frugal gardeners transplant them into the garden or outdoor pots, knowing that if cared for correctly, they will return and flower again every winter and spring.

Quartz Image by Sharon McCutcheon from PixabayQuartz Image by Sharon McCutcheon from PixabayWhen people hear the word “crystal” many will associate it with chandeliers, wedding goblets or bowls, some may think of snow or salt, and others will immediately think of them in their beautiful symmetric mineral and rock forms,  produced by the earth over millions of years. Mankind has always had an affinity with crystals, and places like New Mexico and Arizona have known energy vortexes, caused by meteorites and other natural phenomenon that produced an exponential amount of crystals in the earth.

An excerpt from my new e-book "Growing Culinary Herbs in South Africa"

For most people, bay is the least understood herb, and one which is tossed into soups and stews without a second thought, and then relegated to the back of the spice cabinet once again. This is understandable because the aromatic leaf from the bay tree doesn't taste like much other than, well, a leaf! But steep a few leaves in a warm broth or sauce and your dish will become infused with fragrant flavour.
