The end results are worth the effort. This DVD shows you how to achieve success. Leonie shares her garden design secrets and soil recipes that is guaranteed to work.

Leonie explains her system.

“We have to get these school gardens looking brilliant from the start, because I know from my experience, there are so many critics out there that want us to fail.” she said. “So I have to get it right and I have to get those gardens bursting out of the ground with food that is going to grow so quick that everyone goes ‘Wow! Look at that garden. How did she do that?’

“That’s why you put the work in at the start and your gardens will tell the story.”
