Veggie Might

Whoever says nothing grows in Dubai needs to check out Hayley MacDonald’s garden. Transforming what was, only last August, a dusty patch of sand, this enterprising fan of all things natural has virtually fed herself and her husband all winter with delicious greens and vegetables cultivated in her own back garden.

How to Grow your Own

Jo says, “Personally, I grow simply because I can… I enjoy it but, between running two companies and living a busy life, I don’t have much time to spend on it. I just go with the flow. If something is doing well, I leave it. If it isn’t doing well, I move it around until it’s in a place where it is happier. This winter I’ve had tomatoes, bitter gourd, sweet potatoes, kale, radishes and carrots.”
