Plant now for spring

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

If you love a spring feast of broad beans, now’s the time to get planting – and Big Bunny has a colourful new treat for bean fans!

Red Hughy broad beans have stunning scarlet flowers instead of the more usual white – a gorgeous splash of colour in the spring vege bed, and just as productive as more traditional varieties.

Why not interplant them with white-flowering Coles Dwarf for a candy-striped effect? :-)

How’s this for a fancy frock for a wedding, the races, or perhaps a posh picnic? This vintage-inspired taffeta and silk knee length dress from The Frock Closet is inspired by an early 1960s Simplicity pattern. We’ve teamed it up with a touch of Aotearoa style – a capacious pink harakeke kete from Souly Fibre.
