Wild Canary has its own extensive kitchen garden where we grow fragrant herbs, edible flowers and seasonal produce. Early in the mornings and throughout the day, you will find our chefs harvesting what they need for the day’s dishes.
We nurture the garden using organic, permaculture and biodynamic principles. In consultation with local farmers supplying Wild Canary, we also plant the same plant varieties to demonstrate what can be grown. This gives a true indication of when produce is available.
The kitchen garden is made up of four main beds, 2.6 metres wide by 12 metres long. Along with a good quality vegetable soil mix, we have also used Rockypoint Active8 and Rockypoint Cow Manure. The soil has been blended with Hydrocel, a product that helps to retain moisture and increase viagra nutrient availability, which helps to grow robust plants. All the beds are mulched with a generous thick cover of sugar cane to retain moisture and to also feed the soil as it decomposes. The garden is fertilised on a regular basis with a mixture of Powerfeed and Seasol to give them some extra nourishment. All these products are available through Brookfield Garden Centre.
A diverse selection of over 40 types of edible herbs, roots, spices, leafy greens and culinary flowers are currently planted in the kitchen garden. You will also find pineapples, tomatoes, lettuce and other edibles that have recently been planted out. The gardens are an ever-changing entity, and we will be showcasing seasonal plants that you can then pick up from the nursery and plant in your garden at home.
