For me, one of the best things about summer is the insects. It’s also the worst thing. I dearly love the butterflies, dragonflies, hoverflies, damselflies and bees on our patch of planet Earth — like that beautiful creature opposite, which fluttered around our crepe myrtles last summer — but do we really need the midges and mozzies and March flies? Of course, there are also the critters we hear but don’t see so much: the singing cicadas and the chirping crickets. Are they lovestruck males serenading their prospective lady bugs? Or are they trying to send off carnivorous birds, or making calls of distress? Whatever the reason, their choruses are the soothing sounds of the Aussie summer, especially that wall of sound the cicadas create. Then there are the creepy-crawlies I neither…

the grapevine

JO IMMIG Jo is an environmental scientist, photographer and writer. She has worked in the environment movement for decades and is co-ordinator of the National Toxics Network, an organisation dedicated to creating a toxic-free future. She has written many articles for magazines and is the author of two books: Toxic Playground and Safer Solutions. ACIDIFYING OCEANS FUEL CLIMATE CHANGE The sea’s part in producing oxygen and storing carbon is often overlooked. The global ocean plays a greater role than all the forests, contributing between 50 and 85 per cent of the oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere. Tiny ocean plants called phytoplankton are the “lungs” of the ocean; they live near the surface and travel with the currents. Using photosynthesis, they turn carbon in the atmosphere into carbon in their bodies, forming the foundation for…

wonder weed

Cannabis, marijuana, weed — call it what you like — is a plant best known as an illegal drug due to a mind-altering chemical contained in some strains, called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). All forms of cannabis have been illegal to grow, use and sell since 1937. However, in Australia, changes to legislation around the growing of some types of cannabis have opened up a valuable horticultural crop that is in demand for its medicinal use. The legal cultivation of medicinal cannabis (also called medical cannabis) in Australia became possible in February 2016 with amendments to the Narcotic Drugs Act 1967. Another form of cannabis, known as hemp, which has no THC compounds, is also being grown as a commercial crop in Australia. Since 2017, hemp seed can be added to foods. Cannabis (Cannabis sativa) is…

pulp perfection

Despite its South American origins, passionfruit is the topping on the Australian dream. There was a time when it seemed every suburban backyard had a passionfruit vine — right next to the choko and the outside dunny. The succulent yellow pulp seemed to be everywhere. It was the key ingredient of the icing on the humble vanilla slice and was drizzled on ice-cream and fruit salads. Kids went crazy for fizzy Passiona (first manufactured by Spencer Cottee in 1924) and it was passionfruit that gave the iconic pavlova its tang. Contrary to my own childhood musings, the fruit’s name has nothing to do with romantic passion. Its genus name Passiflora or “passion flower” can be traced to the 18th century when missionaries attempting to convert indigenous Brazilians dubbed it “flower of the…

the gardener’s gardener

Who do you call when you want a nice garden but don’t know where to start? Or you just need a bit of a hand? Try craft gardener Robert Wilson. Robert, who lives on a suburban block in the western suburbs of Brisbane with partner Chelsea Allan, her three children and Louie, the black and white rescue cat, has made a successful career of gardening, garden design and workshopping. For many years, he says, he struggled with the term “gardener” when he knew as a professional fully trained horticulturist he had far more to off er than just lawn mowing, hedging, quick garden makeovers and green waste removal. It was when he was working for Gardening Australia’s Jerry Coleby-Williams that Robert first heard the European term “craft gardener” and thought, “That’s it!” ROBERT LIKES…

Once upon a time, this humble staple root veg wasn’t grown for its distinctive orange root at all. In fact, in the 7th century, wild carrots in colours of purple, white, red, black and yellow grew throughout the area that is now Iran and Afghanistan. Back then, carrots were a popular forage food that people gathered both for their tasty, nutritious green tops and, albeit tiny, brightly coloured roots. Through cultivation and selective breeding, the orange, larger-rooted carrots we know today began to appear in European marketplaces around the 16th century. There’s an apocryphal tale that orange carrots became popular as a show of pride in the colour of the national flag when the Dutch celebrated independence from the Spanish empire in the 17th century. CARROTS GROW BEST IN WARMER SOILS, SO GROW THEM…
