Great Idea Andy, Love your new Avatar.

I am more grateful for your comment than you might know Dianne.  I was worried it was a silly post.  

On the avatar front, all the cool kids were doing it so I just copied them.  Shhh. 

Just as well I'm not one of the 'Cool Kids', this mug is not one for a New Prospective Member to see.

Pfft.  If Dave and I don't scare them off, we are pretty safe with a picture of you!  but do whatever makes you comfy.  That's the beauty of BLF.  Rulez is for Fulez.  Just play Koolz.  

Good work Andy. 

Yes Dave.  Our comedic genius is seldom acknowledged.  Men ahead of our times.  

Here at BLF we grow our own.

I almost spat rum on my screen with that post.  Curse you!

haha nice one

Episode 6 went up tonight.  BLF even rated a few mentions.  

Choosing your plants

Great video, Andy. Shedwars seems like an interesting concept.

I liked the idea of trying to help new gardeners.

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.
