Hungry for Change – about the experts

I’m counting down the days for the new Hungry for Change documentary. Why? Because it’s produced by the same people who did the “Food Matters” documentary, which is my all time favourite food and nutrition movie. Hands down.

If I’ve learnt anything is the last few years, 100% what food you eat does matter to your health.

While waiting for the release, I wanted to find out some more about the experts featured in the new movie.

Wow what an incredible range of talented people.

Native plant choice

There are a few questions to ask before you buy a plant.

Does it suit the climate?

Is the mature plant the right size for the spot?

Will the soil and water requirements be suitable?

I chose our native plants based on ‘Creating a Sustainable, Waterwise Garden’ by Linda Ross. I also worked my way through back issues of ‘Gardening Australia‘ and ‘Organic Gardener‘ magazines from the library and added more natives to my wish list.

Two other good resources are your state’s or local Society for Growing Australian Plants and the illustrated ‘Australian Native Plants‘ (I have the Concise Edition) by Wrighley and Fagg.

A word of warning though, if I bought a plant at the nursery because it looked attractive or had pretty flowers, it was usually dead within a month of planting.
