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

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.
