Clay and I live with our 3 boys in Mitchelton. Here are the details about our garden:
We live on a 683m block, our house sits right in the middle and Clay has planted our (almost) entire perimetre with fruit trees. We have several different Figs, mandarins, lemons, olives, grapefruit, peach, nectarine, mango, apple, tree tomato, lemonade, orange and lime trees (I'm sure I've missed some).
Clay does a bit of air-layering, particularly of his fig trees so I'm sure he will love sharing some of his successes with those.
We also have just under 30 Australian Native Bee hives on our block nestled between fruit trees and even on our front deck. Whilst we have already finished splitting most of our hives for the season, we will have a hive ready to split for the GV so we thought this might be a nice opportunity to share how this process is undertaken and to share a bit of information on keeping native bees and watching them in your garden. We were hoping to do some bush honey tasting for our guests as well.
Our property has a gentle slope but is fairly easily accessible for most. We are likely to either set up on our back deck or in our back garden for the visit (depending on the weather). If we set up on the back deck, there are 4 stairs with a handrail to get up there. There is plenty of on street parking at the front of our house.
For those a little wary - we have two dogs - actually two fat Labradors who are very friendly and will welcome visitors with much interest. We also have two cats who are likely to make themselves scarce for the visit.
We have ample tables and enough seating for about 12 or more however if we're likely to get more than this, some may wish to bring a fold up chair. Given we'll be doing a hive split, we'll cap the numbers to around 15 adults, otherwise not everyone will be able to get a good vantage point.
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.
As I will still be in hospital Andy will be giving out the address for me.
Late attendees welcome. Message Andy or phone 0422 022 961 Andy, on the day for the address.
