Choosing the right hose

A successful garden is a culmination of a variety of factors; the appropriate plants for the space. Careful cultivation. A solid plan for pre-and aftercare. Also, the correct tools for the job. For a novice gardener, choosing the right equipment for a plot can be a tricky endeavour. Fortunately, when it comes to building your tool collection, lushspace.io’s Head Gardener Mus has some helpful tips. With Summer upon us and

“Hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature”; handcream advice for gardeners

When gardeners consider their tools, their thoughts lean towards metal prongs, sharp blades, or the buzz of their favourite power tools. Although many rely on them, few remember the equal importance of their protective gear. Hardy gloves and a reliable hat are necessities for the potterer and the horticulturalist alike. Also important, and often forgotten, is the right suncare. Spending up to twelve hours a day outside and a crucial

Why not turf in Summer?

There is nothing like enjoying a gorgeous summer’s day on an opulent, verdant lawn. For lushspace.io’s Head Gardener, Mus, Rolawn is his preferred supplier and the Medallion turf is his favourite to work with. In 2007, this same brand was installed for the opening of the impressive Glasshouse at RHS Wisley. It has now become Mus’ first choice to clients looking for high-grade, multi-purpose grass that cuts beautifully. However, as

Caring for your wisteria

Earlier this year, lushspace.io’s Head Gardener, Mus proudly planted an established wisteria. The specific variety was a Chinese wisteria or Wisteria sinensis of the pea family. This gorgeous plant boasts elegant floral displays of cascading purple and a delicate scent. Having navigated the learning curve himself, Mus wanted to share his findings on how to sow and care for this stunning plant. The first thing to ensure in creating the

Purple vienna seeds; from last season, to this summer.

Purple became the season’s colour for gardens in Summer 2018. The popular trend led to the gracing of plots with lashings of violet-hues in flowering plants and edibles. In vegetable patches across the UK, Purple Vienna Kohl Rabi was a favoured choice for its aesthetic and as a delicious ingredient. With bulbs that grow above ground, kohl rabi is prized for high yields being cold-hardy. Last year, Lushspace.io head gardener,

The Globalising Entrepreneur

By Mustafa Korel, Head Gardener In 2017, I started a HND in Business at Morley College and was where the spark moment for creating a horticultural social enterprise, lushspace.io , happened – though, I started the programme with nine, yes, nine different entrepreneurial ideas that I was working on. Soon, I realised that such a fragmented approach to enterprise would be counter-productive. As hard as it was I had to

Reflection: Uwe Flick’s “Introducing Research Methodology” (2nd ed.)

By Mustafa Korel, Head Gardener This post was first published on PENZU. Reading through Flick’s ‘Introduction to Research Methods’ bolstered and built on, what I realise now, my limited pre-existing knowledge of research. While I have held positions that involved research – my previous level of research is not quite up to the academic standard that is expected of me. This could be a stark revelation, but as I have learned last year – accept criticism and especially from my

Starting Unit 11: Research Project

By Mustafa Korel, Head Gardener This post was first published on PENZU. At last Friday’s session, I was very excited to read that the set assignment was about globalisation – there is so much interesting information out there at the moment, like how SMEs are responding to a globalised world both economically and politically (paywall) and how their innovation is helping to drive a global economy. While this is an exciting research field, it
