But it's not a mere showplace - it's a working garden that reflects all Sophie's passions: a kids' garden, an 'obsessive-compulsive' gardener's treasure trove, a recycled/repurposed garden, a haven for beneficial insects & bees, and a productive garden supplying her family with fruit, veg and eggs year-round. It's also a work in progress that everyone can learn from, including: , ∗ Sophie's 10 guiding principles (including soil, climate and waterwise gardening) , ∗Top tips for planning your patch - from design principles to plant selection , ∗Sophie's favourite plants - from top trees to great groundcovers , ∗The edible garden , ∗Garden structures that reduce, reuse and recycle - Sophie's garden has everything from an old tram carriage that now houses chooks to garden sculptures, a pizza oven and practical and striking 'gabion' walls, all made from repurposed materials , ∗Kids in the garden , ∗Wildlife gardening
