About Philippa Penfold

  • Urban Gardener
  • Growing Fruit & Veg in small spaces
  • Creator @pips_potted_patch

As an urban gardener I grow all my fruit and vegetables in pots in a small courtyard. I love helping people make the most of their small spaces to grow fresh food organically and sustainably. I recycle all organic waste using a combination of worm farms, bokashi and composting, and apply my expertise to help others reduce their environmental footprint and produce natural food for their plants.

My past works

About me

I enjoy creating new plants for free by seed saving and cutting propagation, and practice companion planting so I don’t need to use pest control products. I grow a lot of unusual food plants (e.g. Pandan, Wasabi) and grow both annual and perennial plants. Whatever you are trying to grow, whatever your problem, I’d love to help you!
