    Keen gardeners may be already considering what to plant in their backyard come spring.

    Whether it's what to add to your vegie patch or what flowers to include for a burst of colour, it's likely gardeners will have a fair idea of what spring will look like in their backyard.

    However, Sydneysiders who are looking for some garden or landscaping ideas may be interested in the pop-up city farm day to be held at Sydney Park in St Peters this weekend (July 28).

    City of Sydney lord mayor Clover Moore said the day would include a gardening demonstration by ABC Gardening Australia's Angus Stewart - planting seeds of inspiration in local green thumbs.

    "City farms are great places for growing fruit and vegetables, volunteering within your community, holding farmers' markets and, with hands-on lessons, helping children learn where food comes from," Ms Moore said.

    Taking inspiration from the community city farm information day to be held from 10am to 2pm this Saturday, keen gardeners may want to try out some new ideas in their own backyard.

    Starting your own veggie or herb garden is healthy, sustainable, affordable and educational for the children, and is also a great challenge for beginner gardeners.
