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…

Hi Dianne, thanks for great reply, I am very interested in growing the YACON tubers as I have a type two diabetic wife. I watched the Garden Guru on tv yesterday and that prompted me to grow this wonderful plant. I have never seen it before and am wanting to get a few tubers to plant. I would be very interested in obtaining some if you or your other members are able to spare a few. Kind regards Wally.

Hi Diane, thanks so much for your welcome. There are so many interesting discussions, the one I am very interested in is a recipe for "Green citrus marmalade (jam)", but I can't find it anywhere. Would you guys help me find it, I recently pruned my lemon tree and I have a lot of green lemons. 

Many thanks, Karmen

Hello Dianne :)

Thank you ever so much for your warm welcome. My apologies for the late reply, i have been busy working. Thank you for the local info, I shall definitely keep my eye out on whats happening and where. I would love to go to the garden visits as I'm eager to learn :) I have just noticed some of my seedling starting to sprout which I'm so thrilled about. I'm heading to purchase some more tomorrow. :) Looking forward to a thriving Veggie garden.

Hi Dianne, Thanks for your email and welcome.  Until last year I was receiving the groups emails and loved reading about the garden visits which always seemed to take place at a time I had to work!  Now I am working less, I am keen to get to know you and some of your lovely members who I am sure agree, there is nothing like getting your hands in the dirt!  Will hopefully meet you this Sunday.

Dianne G'day! Good to hear from you. Thanks for the comments. When I get my head around the Brisbane Local Food I will talk to you. Thanks for the welcome Sarita
