How to find the best green for your home in Canberra
Posted November 05, 2018 14:47:11 The perfect green for the Canberra region is a versatile, yet unique, crop, and that’s where local farmermilo Greene comes in.
“It’s not just a green,” he says.
“I love to plant trees.
Mr Greene’s favourite type of green is the ‘Bourbon’, with its strong aroma and flavour. “
We’ve got some of the best trees around and it gives the green a lovely fragrance.”
Mr Greene’s favourite type of green is the ‘Bourbon’, with its strong aroma and flavour.
“The berries have a wonderful aroma and taste and when you cut them open you smell the fruit,” he explains.
“They give you a little bit of a sour and earthy note, so it’s a great way to bring in a little spice.”
But don’t forget to pick the trees that are the most healthy, as well.
“For us it’s the mature trees that we have,” he adds.
“You need to have the best healthiest and most nutritious trees in the garden.
They can’t do anything without the environment, which is where the best flavour comes from.”
You can pick up a selection of green, herb and flower plants at Mr Greenes local greenhouse, the Greenhouse on the Green, and on his website.
