Event Description

RSVP'S appreciated.

Come and visit my garden at Strathpine.

I have quite a lot of fruit trees and raised vege beds on a small suburban block plus native bees and honey bees. My focus is sub-tropical veg - things which will grow well here but aren't traditional to our palate.

I have only been gardening edibles for about four years, so still learning myself. Every season is a new experience.

Shade available under carport and you might like to bring a chair for comfort. No stairs except into the house for the loo.

Please bring a small plate of food or drink to share and any plants or produce that you want to give away, swap or sell.

Children welcome but must be supervised by their parents. Please be aware that I have a hive of honey bees.

RSVP here, but join the Garden Visit group to be emailed the address closer to the date.

The little hardware along South Pine Rd sells SC mulch for $10 a bale if you buy 5 or more.

It's just changed hands, they've painted it orange and changed the branding.

excellent Lissa!

Barb and I stopped off at the Hardware in Brendale and got a bale ea of s c mulch.

Planning to go with my son on Sat and get lots, then I can get down to serious gardening

Thank you both for coming Muriel :)

Figs are easy-peesy - plant watch them grow. Remind me about the Tamarillo when you see my postings showing the fruit ripening (a few weeks from now) and we'll get you some fresh seed. They grow best from fresh.

Lissa,   Thanks very much for showing us your garden yesterday.

The figs, tamarelo, and bees amongst others  were an inspiration.

Thanks folks :) It was a good day to get together with like minded friends.

Brad, do you want me to leave your plate out for collection? I can leave it on the porch table and you can reach over the railing if I'm not home. Thanks for the tom plant!

Hi LIssa, just a quick not to say many thanks for your invitation to attend today.  I really enjoyed meeting you and other members of the group and appreciate all the cuttings you were kind enough to give out.  You have given me some great advice and hopefully I can get my garden as productive as yours.

Thank you for a really enjoyable morning. Your garden looks fabulous and so productive. Lovely to meet new people and catch up with those I know.

We're having a couple of extra visitors today as well, Lanie and Julie -  who don't yet belong to BLF. Should be a big day.

Travis you're always welcome to come visit on your own, you're so close anyway. Just check the day/time suits me before turning up.

Matt - you're on! ;) We can always stand and admire your Clitoria ternatea. I have one surviving plant! Have a good trip.
