SUMMER 2016-17, WHAT ARE YOU SOWING, PLANTING, PREPARING, DESIGNING-REDESIGNING FOR YOUR GARDEN

Posted on December 3, 2016 at 12:19 17 Comments

Well Summer is here. We have felt the brunt of the first storms for the Season, some of us left with a mess to clean up and others with some lovely rain added to their tanks. As we feel the extremes of Summer so do our Flowers, Vegetables, Herbs, Plants and Trees. Whilst some are very good at coping with the stresses of Summer others need help. So it's time to think about how we can help our plants along.

Mulching is important, as is keeping the water up. There are many forms of…

GV AND BOOZE DEMO AND TASTING AT ANDY'S 22ND OCT 2017

Oh what a wonderful day for a GV at Andy's, the sun was shining and the rain stayed away for us to enjoy a very different GV. We welcomed old friends and greeted new members, even a couple of Andy's curious neighbours who were out on a walk took the time to drop in.Andy and Rozie's garden has certainly benefited from the generous deluge of recent rains, the tanks are full and the gardens are lush and healthy. The Poultry were looking beautiful, I have never seen such fat Quails and I love the…See More

Hi Dianne, Thanks for the welcome. We are a 3 generation family and bought the property with our daughter, son-in-law and baby. It was established with the fruit trees and we are now trying to learn how to care for them and grow as much of our own food as possible. I have almost completed the chook shed so chooks will be arriving soon. I have also started building some wicking beds.

We will be joining some of the groups and the Garden Visits looks very inviting. Hopefully we will have something to share.

Cheers Clive
