Gayle's garden: For those who haven’t been before, this is a flat suburban block with a short steep driveway, although now there is an alternate route if you find walking up slopes difficult. Plenty of street parking. The garden is not fenced so if you bring small children, you’ll need to watch them.
The verge garden continues to evolve with some of the initial tubestock now grown into substantial plants. I’ll have printouts of the BCC verge planting guidelines on the day.
The garden itself is a mix of native plants, birdbaths and 2 ponds for the wildlife, birds, bees, butterflies etc, plus flowers, fruit trees, vegetables and herbs. Very little grass. I have a thing about pathways and sitting places – and repurposing. There are several worm farms – a worm café, in ground towers, and little rotters from Kookaburra worm farms.
The palm trees that were behind the
pool tank have been removed which has given me a new space to grow plants. However, the solid clay soil mixed with stones is a challenge and the self-watering pots are back in use. Some of the stones have gone into a new gabion cube to make a garden seat.
The last house in the estate over the back fence has finally been built so hopefully no more water flooding through. I am hoping to be rid of the garden shed by 20 January, and the slab will become the new potting area.
Children welcome but must be supervised by parents at all times.
Please bring a small plate of food or drink to share and any plants, produce or seed that you would like to share, swap or sell.
It is always a good idea to bring along a chair as we do sometimes have more visitors than chairs available at GV gardens.
RSVP required so that the address can be sent to you closer to the date. The email address you nominated when you joined will be used. Please update this if it has changed.
Late attendees welcome. Message Dianne or phone 0407691485 on the day for the address.
