Event Description


This months GV will be at Susan Haywards garden.

Susan's words:

I grow many varieties of fruit trees, some only just starting but have some established plants.  I also have self wicking beds for vegetables and am building my own wetpot system for the herb patch - hopefully it will be well established by the time everyone comes.

Ground is completely flat but there are about 5 stairs to get up to the house.

Plenty of on street parking. 

We'll have about 15 chairs available to sit on and a covered area set up.

Children are welcome but must be supervised by their parents.

Please bring a small plate of food or drink to share plus any seed, produce etc that you would like to share, swap or sell.

Street address will be provided to those who RSVP closer to the date.

Join the Garden Visit group for information on how to attend or host a GV.

I am going to bring my daughter along so she can see what I am up to.

PS She is cooking the cakes.

I have some Water Chestnuts to give away for planting. Too small to eat (unless you're real keen!). Also some Pigeon Pea seedlings in tubes and choko ready for planting out.

I hope I can make it this time.  Is anyone interested in bunya pine?  I've got two I bought as tubestock about 3 years ago.  They were repotted at that time, and I have left it since.  They're now about maybe 30 cm tall, but I'm sure they would grow faster if they're in a bigger pot, or in ground.  Doesn't look like I'll get a bigger garden any time soon, so they're free to a good home.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
