Andrew.... My garden is not new, just not so well developed. I've got a few veggie beds and some fruit trees and lots of trees that I don't know the name of. I just muddle along with my plantings.

Elaine.... There isn't much about me on my page anyway.... I like gardening and have just enough energy to grow Low maintenance vegetables and no maintenance fruit trees. 

I have a big yard and verandah where I spend more time on , than in the garden ! I'll be happy for advice and encouragement to get me motivated .

I live in Fairfield and I'll call Dianne with some details of my home .

Cathie - that's a Friday!  I went with 16th Saturday. 

Comment by Andrew Cumberland on January 14, 2018 at 22:34

Dianne - I updated the calendar but haven't made the events. 

Comment by Andrew Cumberland on January 14, 2018 at 22:32

Good on you Anne.  Just the fact that it's a new garden will be very interesting.  

Comment by Cathie MacLean on January 14, 2018 at 22:12

Seems like I looked at the 2017 calendar on my phone.  Let's try the 15th July instead.

Comment by Elaine de Saxe on January 14, 2018 at 21:18

Oh dear, Anne Heap's page is private so no way to read any info at all.

Comment by Cathie MacLean on January 14, 2018 at 19:59

No worries Anne. Looks like 16 July for me then Dianne. 

Comment by Anne heap on January 14, 2018 at 18:19

I could do June if Cathie doesn't mind doing another month. 

I've  never hosted before and have been to a gv once only but Andrew is most encouraging and I'll give it a go.

But be warned , it is not really interesting . 23 June , Saturday is a good day for us.

Comment by Cathie MacLean on January 14, 2018 at 15:26

Sophie -you and I are on track to repeat last year, one after the other! I sent Dianne a message to say I'd do June. If there are newbies that want to host though, I can be flexible. I don't want to schedule them out of an opportunity if they would like to have folk over. 

Comment by Sophie on January 14, 2018 at 14:58

Im happy to host last sunday of May :)

Comment by Andrew Cumberland on January 14, 2018 at 13:12

I'm happy to take a month that's not filled.  Everybody has seen my garden by now.  Come on you lot!  Here's what I said last year and it is still true.

Dear wonderful, new members.  WE WANT YOUR GARDENS!!!!!!

Now the idea of a garden visit might be scary.  You might be thinking, "My garden would be an embarrassment! I'm not as good as those experienced gardeners."  

Well nothing could be further from the truth.  A starting garden makes the long-term gardeners feel fantastic about themselves because they get to offer all sorts of advice and pretend we know what we are doing!  In many ways, the more problems you have in your yard, the happier the experienced gardeners are.  

Catering is easy because most people bring stuff along to eat.  The give away plant table keeps half the crowd's focus for ages anyway (and you get to keep all the stuff that people don't take).  You don't have to be a professional presenter - I think on my first garden visit I just walked around and said, "How do I fix that problem?"

Hi Valerie, Thanks so Much, I will put you into the calendar today.

Comment by Matthew Bushnell on January 14, 2018 at 7:23

I would love to host a GV at some stage in the future, but right now I am afflicted with a bad case of C.H.A.O.S. (Cant Have Anyone Over Syndrome). I need to deal with a bunch of clutter to make my place accessible for a GV!!

Comment by Valerie on January 6, 2018 at 6:50

I'll have to survey the extend if devastation after I come back but I am thinking 17 March might work for us. 

Comment by Dianne Caswell on January 5, 2018 at 19:40

Sorry Valerie there is no link yet as I do not have anyone who has come forward who would like to host a visit.

Would anyone out there like to be the first to volunteer as I would like to have a few in before I go in for surgery. Please Personal Message me if you would like to consider a visit. It would be lovely to see some new or newly renovated gardens in the visits as well this year.

I will be adding all of the BCC Events and others to EVENTS this week end.

Comment by Valerie on January 4, 2018 at 23:59

Any 2018 link?

You are part of a very supportive community now.... shhhh... don't tell anyone....

Is there anyone who would like to Host a Garden Visit as Sept, Oct, Nov & Dec are still open. You may be a new gardener needing assistance in Design, Prep of a Fruit or Veggie Garden, Production, etc. or have a well established garden and just enjoy having gardening friends over. Our members love to visit gardens Big or Small, Permaculture to Wicking Beds. Our Swap Tables always filled with an interesting assortment of Plants, Cuttings, Seeds and Produce. Everyone always comes away with something be it a Pineapple or a Great Tip for Gardening or a Recipe for a treat you may have had from the Morning Tea Table. 

If you are interested in Hosting a GV please let me know via Personal Message. Happy Easter to All!!!!

Sophie is having her GV a little later in the year and Susan has been good enough to take her date. Hope to see a good roll up to Susan's Garden, there is always something new and exciting in her garden a real example of how to grow many Food Plants on a smallish block.

Comment by Dianne Caswell on February 7, 2017 at 6:28

The Elaine's GV Feb 5th Sunday, has had to be postponed until March 5th due to heat on Sunday. Hope to see a good roll up in March...
