Gardening is good for you. Get out there in your garden and have a little bit of fun.
Even sitting in your own garden contemplating all the plants you can grow can make you feel happier and healthier. But don’t just sit there – go out and sow that seed or pull that weed. You can do it.
So just do it!
I can help you do it
Solanum aviculare or Kangaroo Apple has big yellow cherry like seeds, which turn a lovely orange colour in the autumn – the birds love them – which is why this plant was a volunteer in my garden. Solanum plants grow really fast; potatoes are in the Solanum family. But you might try Solanum crispum “Glasnevin”, the Potato Tree, one of the easiest shrubs to grow. It is growing on a tall gable end in the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin.
