Get Ready for Winter Now

April 18, 2018

On the weekend we ordered some native plants and trees for our garden as well as seedlings for our winter vegie crop (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, parsnips, carrots, winter greens and peas). The expert down at the nursery told us that now is the ideal time to plant because there’s still enough warmth in the air and soil for the plants to establish their root systems before Winter. If we leave it too late, when the warmth is all gone, then they won’t get a chance to establish themsel....

November 3, 2015

Vitamin D has attracted a lot of hype in the past 12 months mainly due to the increased research into both the benefits of the vitamin and the amazing Vitamin D deficiency in Australia (despite us living in the “sunburnt” country. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and it was assumed that for most Australians adequate Vitamin D levels were obtained from sun exposure. But our lifestyles have changed and see us indoors more often than our parents and grandparents were.  Couple this with ou....

Top Immune Herbs to Prevent Winter Illness

April 19, 2013

There’s been a lot of noise in the media in recent weeks about the “deadly flu” hitting Australia... and it’s about this time every year that we see similar headlines.
