The Land Gardeners - cut flowers & compost fit for a farm

From Nine To Noon, 10:05 am on 8 November 2019

The Land Gardeners New Zealand-born and raised Bridget Elworthy and Englishwoman Henrietta Courtauld create gardens that are productive and wild. They also grow and sell organic English cut flowers, and research plant and soil health. Bridget and Henrietta are keynote speakers at Rapaura Springs Garden Marlborough in Blenheim , which runs til Sunday.

They're working with farmers here and in England, introducing their Climate Compost project - looking at how high quality compost can be made on a farm scale, and exploring ingredients that make the healthiest and most bio-diverse gardens.

This dynamic duo speak with Kathryn Ryan about the importance of improving soil with microbe-rich compost.
