Max and Jan Davey are the definition of "Green Thumbs". A walk through their five acre property on the residential outskirts of Warragul reveals, a passion and knack for growing just about anything.

Despite heavy frosts and clay soils Max has successfully cultivated avocados, guavas, turmeric, ginger, galangal, pineapples, sweet potatoes, lemongrass and all manner of herbs and flowers normally accustomed to tropical climes.  His orchard features myriad stone fruits, citrus and some more curious fruits uncommon in Australia

In hot houses and constantly rotated raised beds Max and Jan tend to a prolific collection of greens, herbs, onions, daikon, pumpkins, land cress, water cress, mustard greens, mizuna, lettuces, Cavolo Nero, kale and so many other delicious nutritious plants. 

Join Max and Jan and the S+S team for a day outside, enjoy a warm cup of Chai and a sweet treat on arrival and prepare yourself for a tour around Max + Jan’s property. The tour will be spent discussing the best winter planting tips, protecting your garden during the cold months and planning for a bountiful spring harvest,  as well as tasting some beautiful winter produce plucked fresh from the garden.

Max will give you his advice on hot houses, raised beds  soil health, creating rich, free draining humus rich soil, preparing compost teas, companion planting,  propagating from cuttings and any other garden question you may have.
