Dianne has kindly offered to change her GV to 30th August to avoid the clash with the Blackbutt visit. Thank you Dianne :)

Otoh, if like us anyone wants to go to Diana's and Glen/Christine's, there is the option of visiting Diana earlier in the year. That would be more likely for us, as both are very long drives, both on the one weekend would not be possible for we old ducks.

Bit of a clash with the Sept visits.

People might be happy to have the option of one visit in the south west and one in the north west on the same weekend but it will make it difficult for those who wish to go to both.

Hi Lissa & Florence, I didn't think I better have personal info on the thread....Cheers Dianne

Dianne, I will send you a private message with some links to the Event listings so you can check them (noone but the two of us). Florence has jumped in and saved the day removing the private info that was posted on the net.

HI Dianne, I'm not sure when Lissa will come online, so I have removed your previous comment with what I think you referred to as INFO.  I've copied it and sent it off to Lissa via PM before deleting, I hope this is what you need...

Comment by Dianne Caswell on November 3, 2014 at 21:49

Lissa, I have done the wrong thing, can you please remove the INFO for me from the net...Thanks....Dianne

PS Re accessing any of the other GV. If you think you might like to come and wonder if you will cope with the walker, contact me and I will make further enquiries for you :)

Comment by Lissa on November 3, 2014 at 19:50

Thank you for jumping in and offering to host not just one, but two, GV Dianne. I'll add the dates to the calendar.

I need a bit more information from you so I can create a couple of Event listings.

Please read "How to Host a Garden Visit" HERE and message me (click on my name, "send a message" on the left) privately the information. Let me know if you have any problems :)

Hi Lissa, I would love to host an Open Day in my garden at ELLEN GROVE, on Sunday March 29th & Sunday September 13th, 2015. Hope these days suit. It is a little hard for me to get out to Garden Visits due to my Disability unless I know that I am able to access the said garden by my tall walker 'Chassie', but I love my garden and as my OT now allows me to garden after a year, I am madly getting back into it again. I am a Moon Gardener so it does take me a little planning but it works for me, and keeps me organized. I am so enjoying my time on BLF. Cheers.. Dianne

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.
