• Modular Planter System A unique planter combination concept, created by GardenStuff for Landscapers and Horticulturists. In the bottom row of below image, you will see the four modules used to create the seven planter arrangements above. There are dozens of more planter combinations possible. Build into corners, or around them. Create flower islands, big or small in no time. Make stunning arrangements using only four different planters. To build the modules, we use solid, rough sawn pinewood from sustainable forests in the Cape. The timber is not treated, but we do so on request.

  • There is nothing like the taste of a freshly picked tomato, warm from the sunshine. In the smallest of gardens or even a flat with a window-box, it is worth growing at least one tomato plant. Tomato Facts: There are over 10,000 varieties of tomato, from small cherry ones to Ponderosa, which can weigh in at 1.5 kg and more. Tomatoes come in a range of colours including pink, purple, black, yellow and white. With an annual production of 60 million tons, they remain the world’s most demanded and most popular fruit. The second spot goes to bananas and third to apples.  The Tomato and you: Tomato has potent medicinal properties. It can lower the risk of cancer, prevents cardiovascular diseases, purifies cigarette smoke carcinogens, is full of minerals and vitamins, lowers hypertension, regulates blood levels, dissolves gallstones, reduces the severity of blood clots, treats inflammation, and more. Tomatoes are the richest source of lycopene, an antioxidant that is not only good for the heart and effective against certain cancers but also important for the health of the prostate gland in men. Cooked tomatoes are better for you than raw ones, as more beneficial chemicals are released. Tomatoes are also packed with vitamins A and C, calcium and potassium.  Did you know? Sometimes tomatoes are picked green and dosed with ethylene gassed on their way to the supermarket. This way when they arrive, they are ripe. Refrigeration decreases the flavour and quality of tomatoes. Tomatoes can keep longer if you store them with their stem down. When and how to plant? Plant in Cape Town from August till December and in Gauteng from August till November. Put the seedling in a deep hole, up to the top set of leaves. The covered stems will put out other roots, and you will have a stronger, healthier plant. Tomatoes need feeding. Use some long-term fertiliser pellets or regularly feed when you water. Feeding also improves the flavour of the fruit Tomatoes grow well besides Carrot, Celery, Chives, Parsley, Marigold and Basil. Avoid growing close to Rosemary, Potatoes and Fennel. What soil is best? Tomatoes will grow in almost all soil types except heavy clay. The soil should be relatively loose and well drained. Tomatoes don’t do well in dry soil but avoid planting them in excessively wet, waterlogged soil. An ideal potting mix for tomatoes consists of equal parts potting soil, perlite, sphagnum peat moss and compost.

  • Experienced gardeners use raised beds to sidestep a long list of gardening challenges. The primary purpose of using raised beds is to be able to grow in a custom soil mix because your current soil is poor. The raised bed soil is lighter, fluffier, holds more water and has more nutrients. Bad soil is out because you fill a raised bed with a customised soil-and-compost blend. Greater exposure to the sun warms the bed, which allows more plant diversity and extends the growing season. Plants can be spaced closely together, so yields go up, water-use efficiency is maximised, and weeds are crowded out. Finally, raising the soil level by even 20 cm reduces the back-bending effort needed for jobs such as planting, weeding and harvesting.

  • The cold-frame can be slotted together or taken apart for storage in seconds. The top frame has a UV stabilised plastic cover to achieve a greenhouse effect. Ventilation can be regulated by moving the frame sideways. The cover is also effective to protect the plants from animals, wind, hard rain and hail.
